The University has been participating in the Coast2Coast Seminar series for a number of years.  Organized out of IRMACS at Simon Fraser University, two themed seminar series are delivered per year, Fall and Spring.  This term’s C2C Seminar is on Antibody Sequencing, organized by Dr. Felix Breden from SFU.

REDCap Service Launch Announcement

As pre-announced in an earlier post in this blog, REDCap hosting is being launched as a service from ICT today.

REDCap is a data collection and management tool written by a group at Vanderbilt University, and adopted by over 1100 institutions world-wide from Dunedin to Reykjavik, who form the REDCap Consortium. Researchers on campus have been requesting this tool for their research.

The University of Saskatchewan implementation is described on this service page in ICT’s website. There are some restrictions on the use of the service, many having to do with the terms of our agreement signed to allow us to join the REDCap Consortium. Researchers wishing to use the service will complete a form and send that to the service support team.

We will respond with information on how to access the REDCap service and other information on its use. There is currently no charge for the service, and none are anticipated in the future.

For the REDCap service only, please contact REDCap_service@usask.ca with any questions or support requests.
