Several staff members from the HITS Research Applications & Advanced Computing (RAAC) division participated in the 6th annual Cores Technology & Services Showcase, sponsored by the Biomedical Research Core Facilities (BRCF).

The Showcase, which took place June 14 at Palmer Commons, brought together more than 35 U-M units and partner vendors, including HITS, to share the latest technology and expertise in biomedical research. About 300 researchers, staff, and U-M affiliates attended the Showcase.

Steve Gendler, HITS laboratory research and technology solutions (LabRATS) manager, spoke about the services available for assisting researchers with electronic tools and locating shared services for researchers.

Ryan Echlin, HITS research engagement product and application manager, and Tony Markel, HITS research engagement service manager, talked about new features in MiCores, an iLab Solutions system used by BRCF to streamline the ordering, billing, and scheduling of scientific products and services, as well as current and upcoming shared IT services available from HITS.
