Strategy 7: Research Support

Strengthen shared infrastructure and resources to support research excellence

UBC is improving support for researchers across the university through enhanced core facilities, spaces and services. These are imperative if researchers are to work effectively and productively. Globally leading research in many disciplines requires sophisticated equipment that depends on significant technical expertise to build and run. By creating state-of-the art capabilities such as the Sequencing + Bioinformatics Consortium for gene sequencing, we are providing facilities, training and advice for both UBC and external partners. We are exploring ways to help researchers engage with communities and access scholarly resources. UBC is enhancing digital research infrastructure in many areas of scholarship. Priorities include Advanced Research Computing (ARC) resources, technical and scientific support for research data management, data science, and local capacity for health researchers to address data access challenges.
