Research Information Technology Systems (RITS), as part of the Division of Oncology Biostatistics and Bioinformatics in the Department of Oncology, Johns Hopkins University, implements functional and appropriate information technology for the Hopkins oncology community. RITS collaborates with Cancer Center investigators in the design and construction of data systems in support of clinical, translational, and laboratory research. RITS members build databases which integrate data from disparate sources. The goal of RITS is to provide an integrated environment via hardware, software and computational expertise to facilitate the aims of the researchers.
The group provides database and web development, web site support, and server support for multiple programs and SPORES, with over 200 users.
