Members of Research IT’s Research Infrastructure Group have been working with the Proton Therapy research group (PRECISE) led by Prof. Karen Kirby at The Christie Hospital to improve clinical dose prescriptions in radiotherapy.
Find out how our Research Infrastructure Engineers helped a researcher from Division of Cardiovascular Sciences run a million R jobs on confidential data in weeks rather than months.
Research IT will be supporting a new 3D, large-scale visualisation facility in The Alliance Manchester Business School. Not only will we be supplying our expertise by supporting the facility, but we will also be working to integrate it with the rest of the computational infrastructure at the University.
This month we have a bumper collection of top tips from our Research Software Engineers (RSEs)! They are passing on a selection of good practice tips which they advise all researchers who develop or write software, to consider adopting.
As datasets increase in size the need for more memory in your available compute hardware becomes more pressing. Applications such as R, Stata, python and MATLAB are often used to process these datasets and can require significant amounts of memory – to load the dataset, process it and generate results.
If you, as a researcher, are thinking of requesting help from our team of Research Software Engineers (RSEs), you may want to know what skills they have. By ‘skills’ we mean everything from programming languages through specification, methods and testing (to name just some). Ian Cottam describes how we’ve made it easy to find out.
