Examples of visualizations created for various research projects.
The Laboratories Operation and Maintenance Department (Lab Ops) functions as a real-time business continuity unit that anticipates needs and problems in advance, puts resources in place within the limits of the resources provided by the university, and responds in real-time to ensure that laboratory activities are enabled.
Lab Ops acts as advocates on behalf of the faculty, researchers and students in matters that are operational in nature but are intertwined with the academic mission. Lab Ops provides support for research and teaching to all of NYUAD labs and divisions.
Provides services within various units of activity.
Research Technical Services (RTS) supports NYU Abu Dhabi laboratories in the following areas:
Research Fabrication Services (RFS) support the research of NYU Abu Dhabi by designing and manufacturing custom parts based on the needs of the researchers. In-house design and manufacturing allow for tailor-made solutions in a shorter timeframe and at a reduced cost.
Research Fabrication Services include but are not limited to:
Research Materials Services (RMS) manages, operates, and maintains a Research Store for providing an on-hand supply of research lab consumables, including chemicals with an average completion time of 15 minutes. RMS also maintains Laboratory Operations stock, including electrical, plumbing, lab equipment, spare parts, consumables etc. The RMS also assists other departments and research groups with hard to solve procurement problems.
The Research Logistics group handles equipment movement for research purposes, customs clearance at both source and destination and is responsible for obtaining import, export, and material use permits and operating licenses for research activities within the UAE. The Research Logistics team assists campus logistics on an as-needed basis when issues arise with non-research related imports and exports to/from the UAE. The Research Logistics group facilitates NYUAD collaborative research being conducted between different countries by facilitating all the necessary documentation for the transportation of research materials in and out of the UAE.
Research Visualization is a specialized art that enables the communications of scientific concepts to help promote the research, break down complex ideas into easy-to-understand representations, and connect the researcher to the public using aesthetically beautiful and engaging visuals.
The Research Visualization team assists researchers by creating 2D and 3D graphics, animations, and videos for scientific journal covers, journal article graphics as well as visuals for use in presentations, conferences, and social media.
