The Harvard Medical School Image Management Core is a new service of HMS Research Computing  to help researchers manage image data and metadata. The IMC was created in response to the growing complexity and difficulty of managing research image data. The first major offering of the IMC will be a shared installation of the OMERO image management platform. The HMS IT department will install and maintain an OMERO server for use by on-quad HMS researchers. This effort builds upon the successful use of the OMERO platform by the HMS LINCS project. Initial funding for this comes from the Tools and Technology CommitteeHMS IT, and the Harvard Program in Therapeutic Science (HiTS)
