New Research Computing Team Formed
The DGIT Research Computing team hit the ground running, on a mission to bring the best possible cloud computing services and data solutions to researchers at UCLA Health Sciences… and beyond! Many, including their fearless leader, Eileen Lu, have been longtime providers of research IT services, including server and application support to both basic sciences and clinical departments. The team recently completed the creation of a HIPAA-compliant cloud infrastructure on Amazon Web Services (AWS) for UCLA Health Sciences, one of the first of its kind, offering location-independent, secure storage for sensitive research information. With the combined expertise of both UCLA veterans, and new staff hailing from companies such as Facebook and Amazon itself, the Research Computing team is excited to take part in creating digital solutions that aid in scientific discovery.
