Research Software Support Team (RSST)

The Research Software Support Team (RSST) at Sunnybrook is here to assist researchers with technical challenges, allowing them to focus their time on making discoveries and improving health care. The team’s mission is to fill in the gaps in knowledge that may prevent scientists from maximizing the utility of new technologies.

The RSST is composed of a group of software developers with a wide range of skills and experience in creating software for biomedical applications. By working with different research groups across Sunnybrook, the team is able to identify commonalities among the technologies being used and developed, saving time and resources.

The Research Software Support Team:

  • Creates new software that fulfills the needs identified by Sunnybrook researchers
  • Advises scientists about what software tools exist that can solve their current problems
  • Educates scientists with tutorials and information about useful software packages
  • Improves the quality of prototype code written for research projects
  • Prepares the software created at Sunnybrook for open-source distribution
  • Assists researchers in preparing data and deploying their software on High-Performance Computing (HPC) platforms
