Research Enablement Services
We aim to understand and address researchers' technological needs and provide IT solutions that enhance our thriving research environment.
Our model’s success depends on:
- Discovery and enablement
- Faculty engagement
- Communication and collaborations
The health sciences research community strives to uncover the causes of human disease. Such scholarly inquiry requires robust support, customized to every researcher’s needs. We want to partner with researchers, connecting them to the right offerings, teams, and resources.

Governance and Representation
The Health Sciences IT Prioritization Committee guides DGIT in selecting projects that support the Health Sciences missions and the individual goals of faculty, staff, students, affiliates, and partners.
The Research Enablement Advisory Committee governs projects and initiatives to address the technology needs of the basic science research community.
Representation Across the Health Sciences
To holistically assess and address researcher needs, we established a governance structure featuring representation from UCLA Health and all 4 UCLA Health sciences schools:
- The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA
- UCLA School of Dentistry
- UCLA Fielding School of Public Health
- UCLA School of Nursing
- UCLA Health
DGIT Governance Structure
We want researchers to feel comfortable bringing us any project, even if it might not be clear in the beginning how technology might play a role.
