User Series

These events highlight the IT support services we offer to the research communities at UC and Cincinnati Children’s. Please check back for AY17-18 schedules.

Software training opportunities

We offer training on various software packages used for research purposes.

  • REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed exclusively to support data capture for research studies, allowing users to build and manage online surveys and databases quickly and securely. Various levels of training are offered on an ongoing basis for researchers at Cincinnati Children's and the University of Cincinnati. For a complete schedule of upcoming training opportunities, visit UC's Center for Clinical & Translational Science & Training (CCTST).
  • University of Cincinnati Libraries Workshops. Thanks to a generous gift received from the family of Dr. Stanley B. Troup, the Troup Learning Space (MSB G005G) in the Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library will be renovated in summer 2017. They plan to open the newly renovated Troup Learning Space in August. They will continue to teach a few workshops during the summer, but they will be located elsewhere. Please check the library's workshop schedule at If you have an urgent need for instruction on a class normally scheduled by the HSL, please contact Assistant Director Lori E. Harris.

Application Specialist Meetings

Biomedical Informatics sponsors a monthly meeting for application specialists at Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation. The goal of these meetings is to keep everyone updated on the latest resources and services available to Cincinnati Children's researchers and to discuss any research IT-related issues. All research application specialists are welcome to attend. Meetings typically are scheduled for the first Wednesday of every month at 10:30 am in T10.134.
