The first UoM UK Biobank Community meeting will take place on the 19th of November and will feature presentations from Chris Boultwood, Chief Information Officer, UK Biobank and Gary Leeming from Connected Health Cities. If you are a UK Biobank user at the University then come along!
Thank you to everyone who came along to the first Research IT club of the academic year. If you were unable to attend, all the presentations are now available at the links below. We had some great presentations on how our RSEs built a searchable database for Alzheimer’s Research and the first case study of our Cloud bursting in action.
Did you know that the correct costs for Research IT services have to be included in your research grant application before you submit? These services and costs are highly dependent on the nature of your research so it’s important that you get them right. Come along to our Research IT Costing Clinic on the 22nd of October to find out more.
Our Research IT club returns next month! Come along to see our services in action through researcher presentations and to hear the latest research IT news. October sees Richard Unwin from School of Medical Sciences describe how we worked with him to build a searchable database for protein expression in Alzheimer’s Disease that has now been released online.
At Research IT we know how busy researchers are, and how talking face to face can be the easiest way to communicate a problem or complex research idea. That’s why every other Wednesday in term-time we host drop-in sessions across across campus so you can talk to our experts in person about anything research computing related.
The popular conference, Computing Insight UK (CIUK), returns to Manchester again in December with the main theme of “Computing the Future”. Students who are interested in attending can submit a poster abstract which, if accepted, will grant them free registration to the event including the CIUK exhibition and full programme of presentations and breakout sessions.
The last UoM UK Biobank Community meeting of the academic year took place at the end of June. It featured updates from the UK Biobank conference as well as presentations on how to get started with UK Biobank (a great intro for new users and a good refresher for existing users!), best practice for bulk downloads and Translation Manchester.
