Research Computing Services
Research Computing Services (RCS) is an initiative that seeks to bring together technical experts, informaticians, computational resources and related services in support of basic and clinical sciences research. Resources detailed in this website span campuses, schools and departments. Information and contact details are provided in each detail section.
General questions and comments can be sent to the Informatics and Clinical Research team.
The external Research Electronic Data Capture (REDCap) site is now available for research use. This allows researchers and participants to access REDCap functions such as data entry, surveys, and electronic consenting from off-campus networks. This also facilitates multicenter studies by allowing Loyola to be the host data site. More information can be found on the REDCap page. To request access to the external REDCap site, please submit the External REDCap Access Request form.
Loyola has started sending clinical data to the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C). Earlier this fall, Loyola signed a Data Transfer Agreement (DTA) with the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) to participate in the N3C Data Enclave. The N3C is a national resource that will enable large cohort Covid-19 clinical research. A Data Use Agreement (DUA) is planned soon to allow Loyola researchers to request N3C data. More information on N3C and how to request data can be found on the NCATS-N3C page.
