Programs in Development

RRP is continually exploring programs that can further assist UCSF cores and shared laboratories. Some of those programs are:

Big Data

In collaboration with RDO, ICHS, QB3, MAC, HDFCCC, and CDHI, RRP works to provide software tools, hardware capacity and skilled personnel to support the growing needs of the research community. Bioinformatics support provided to core users has huge potential for increasing the value of cores. We are also working to make existing bioinformatics/computational science and biostatistical resources accessible to all UCSF investigators.

Equipment Maintenance Program

The RRP is leading an initiative for institutional support to provide a central backup fund to protect against catastrophic equipment failures. This initiative will be supported by a centralized equipment database that can more accurately predict the best maintenance strategy for individual pieces of equipment. The goal is to reduce service and repair costs through self-funded equipment maintenance.
