Research Computing

ERIS provides information services and technologies to enable and drive innovation in research across the academic medical centers of Partners HealthCare. ERIS is composed of three service-oriented teams that directly support and collaborate with researchers. ERIS provides applications, processes and resources that support the basic, biomedical and clinical research missions across the Partners HealthCare System.

ERIS provides the interface for the research community to Partners IS.  We provide advocacy and guidance on behalf of research to the many enterprise projects and consults that involve Partners Information Security, ITS, Network Engineering, Contracts, Security and other corporate departments. We help define, test and deliver services provided by IS that affect Research. 

The Research Computing Core offers fee-for-service dedicated services including consultation, custom systems programming and database development, desktop support and software licenses for the teaching hospitals of Partners HealthCare.

Mission Statement

The ERIS Core Facility provides cost-effective consultation and technical services to advance world-class medical research. Our goal is to facilitate research breakthroughs through collaborative approaches that are economically structured for research finances.
