Research Software Core

The Research Software Core provides a single site for users to determine which software packages are available to research personnel at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The goal of the Research Software Core is to provide software that will benefit researchers at low or no cost. This is accomplished through bulk purchases and low cost buy-in to campus-wide licenses.

The Core is supported by the Deans of the Graduate and Medical Schools and by Information Resources. It is advised by a committee of faculty and staff, and administered by Academic Information Systems.
