CTSI-approved Cores

For a core facility to become CTSI-designated they must complete an application, conduct an annual user survey, hold an advisory board meeting at least once a year, and post policies for charging, publication, and more. For more information about becoming a CTSI-designated core, please contact Melanie DeFord.

Center for Research Computing

Tile Facility Research Computing

The Center for Research Computing (CRC) is a leader in cyberinfrastructure development and in data- and compute-intensive research. The CRC manages and provides access to supercomputers, clusters, grid networks, and storage, while lending user support services and expertise to researchers within Notre Dame and external organizations, including industry.

The CRC develops computational tools that accelerate scientific inquiry and discovery, including computational modeling, data analysis and management, geographic information systems, and visualization. Additionally, it is an approved Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) core facility with services available to all Indiana CTSI partners.
