School of Medicine Research Computing (SOMRC) is committed to providing individualized support for researchers who are engaged in computationally intensive projects.

With expertise in high-performance computing, SOMRC provides support in the following areas:

SOMRC delivers the services above in the context of system support (web-based ticketing) and consultations (in-person meetings). In either scenario, we seek long-term scientific collaborations. Please use the contact methods below for user support.

System Support

Whether you are interested in local computing resources (Rivanna, Ivy) or cloud solutions (Amazon Web Services), SOMRC can help you effectively implement computational strategies.


SOMRC offers free one-on-one consultations to address specific needs related to data analysis, storage and computation. We are happy to meet with you and discuss your project in-person at your convenience.

Office Hours

Staff from SOMRC host weekly office hours in the Health Sciences Library (HSL). Drop by with a project idea, question about a system or anything else you would like to discuss.
