Research IT has built a robust network of partners across campus to assist researchers in their quest for research technology solutions, access, and expertise.

Our leadership team has presented to various research and faculty groups on campus including the iSchool, Applied Health Sciences, the School of Social Work, the Beckman Instittue, and the Prairie Research Institute. We are always happy to present to units, departments, and groups to inform them about our services.

“I was very impressed when members of the Research IT team came to speak to faculty in the College of Applied Health Sciences. They offer so many services that can help faculty members – I have been here since 2017 and was unaware of all that they offered. These resources make Illinois faculty more competitive for grants and should be included in Facilities and Resources section of grant proposals.”

Wendy Rogers Khan Professor of Applied Health Sciences

At this time, we are developing ways to reach groups virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic and are open to scheduling presentations. We will continue to reach out to units and departments to build our community of experts, services and resources, and to deliver these tools to more researchers who need them.

If you would like our team to present at your next faculty, staff, or group meeting, as well as be available to answer questions releated to research, please contact us at Research-IT@illinois.edu.
