In April 2018, the Office of Biomed Computer Services became a part of the University's Computing & Information Services department. The Division of Biology & Medicine is supported by a team of three information technology support professionals who work closely with other groups in Brown’s Computing & Information Services (CIS) department to provide coordinated access to computing resources.
- Desktop and network support: We install, configure and troubleshoot Windows computers and Macintoshes, as well as HP printers.
- Computer equipment and software procurement: We can assess your technical requirements and recommend suitable equipment and/or software. We will then handle the entire purchase process, including coordinating with Biomed Research Administration on procedures for grant-funded purchases. Computer Services also manages the Equipment Replacement Program which provides Division-funded computers for eligible faculty and staff.
- Administrative file storage: We manage server-based storage for inviduals and groups. It is available for storing administrative, academic, and research material. All files are replicated offsite for business continuity purposes. We also manage the division's FileMaker databases.
