Scientists have developed a molecular “clock” that could reshape how pediatricians measure and monitor childhood growth and potentially allow for an earlier diagnosis of life-altering development disorders. The research, published this week in PNAS, describes how the addition of chemical tags to DNA over time can potentially be used to screen for developmental differences and health problems in children.
Our Research Information Technology team does much more than respond to every day service requests.The expert members of this team directly enable research by supporting state-of-the-art computing, helping researchers manage extremely large data sets, and contributing to clinical tools that use technology to improve care.
They provide integrated Research IT infrastructure and support for research activity on the BC Children's Hospital campus. Their mandate and objective is to provide a research-focused service in parallel complement to the clinical network of the Provincial Health Services Authority.
We provide core services in the following key areas:
- Network Service (Wired, Wireless, Remote Access, Security)
- Web Services (Web Sites, Web applications, Portals, Email Services)
- Data Management (Academic Data, Clinical Data, Core equipment)
- Helpdesk (Computers, Laptops , Printers, A/V equipment)
