CentIT2: The Center for Information Technologies and Telecommunications
The overall goal of the Center for Information Technologies and Telecommunications (CentIT2) is to provide specialized information technology services to support research, professional development and global interactions at the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus. Collaboration from other information technology units from the University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus (MSC) and from the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) System has been secured to provide access to their unique assets when necessary, avoiding duplication of resources.
To attain this goal, CentIT2 focuses on the following specific aims:

These services include a videoconference service, high-bandwidth video streaming capabilities, web casting and webinar services.
Specific Aim 2: To provide information technology services to support global dissemination of information about Medical Sciences Campus research capabilities, resources, activities and contributions to global health and health disparities research. Services related to this specific aim include the creation of a comprehensive RCMI Portal, support in the use of general as well as private social network technologies, limited video production capabilities for posting in the RCMI YouTube Channel, development of content-specific online resources, and creation of group-specific list servers.
Specific Aim 3: To provide information technology services to reengineer and support operations of RCMI Key Activities, as well as operations of other cores and facilities. These services include consultation on database creation and management, optional centralization of research databases, assistance in the implementation of laboratory management system software (LIMS), optional centralized server management and backup systems, and technical support for software and hardware.
