DBS: Research Information Systems Unit (RISU)

Scott Rushing, Director

RISU Mission Statement

The Research Information Systems Unit develops innovative methods for collecting, managing, and integrating research databases using emerging computer technology.

In support of that mission, RISU is organized into three main subgroups: an application engineering group responsible for developing web-based study management systems, a systems group which provides oversight for all server and desktop related computing infrastructure, and a data entry group which provides high quality in-house data entry to funded projects. Our application development team uses a variety of tools to develop a wide array of tools for assisting in the overall management of the study, from data entry solutions and tracking systems that make your research data actionable, to integrating with a variety of digital data devices and solutions like the NIH Toolbox, FitBit, Actigraph and others. Our solutions are focused on using the latest technologies and highly skilled individuals to provide high quality data management systems that facilitate a research project's workflow.

The RISU infrastructure integrates a highly customizable web-based data management framework (DEACON) with relational database management (MS SQL Server) and statistical analysis systems (SAS/R) into a full featured project management system that allow for the collection, validation and analysis of all project data.
