In April 2018, the Office of Biomed Computer Services became a part of the CIS IT Support Consultant program. The Biomed Division is supported by a team of three information technology support professionals who work closely with other groups in Brown’s Computing and Information Services (CIS) department to provide coordinated access to computing resources.   Our objectives are to support the teaching, research and administrative activities of the division through appropriate use of information technology; to enable effective communication with all of the division’s audiences through the Web; and to share knowledge and capabilities with the University IT community.

Services include:

  • 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.

For information on any of the above services, please call 863-2464 or email [email protected].
