Who We Are

Research Information Science & Computing (RISC)

We support research by providing scientific services and technology, a centralized clinical data registry, genomics IT, specimen banking, and administrative systems. These specialized applications, processes and resources support basic, biomedical and clinical research missions across the academic medical centers of Partners HealthCare.  

Many of the services are shared across the institutions at no cost to researchers.  Additional services such as dedicated consultation, academic software licenses, data storage and back-up are offered on a fee-for-service basis.
