Pilot and sustain BRISSkit - Biomedical Research Infrastructure Software Service kit

The project has developed a set of open-source applications running on an Eduserv cloud supporting the Biomedical Cardiovascular Research Unit at Leicester. It involves contact management, electronic data capture, tissue sample inventory management, plus data warehousing and analytics. The service will realise a significant return on investment for the Leicester unit alone. The scheme will now be piloted in four other biomedical research groups, both within the University Hospitals of Leicester Trust and in external groups at University College London and the University of Birmingham.
