About SPARCRequest

SPARCRequest (Services, Pricing, & Application for Research Centers), is a web-based research management system developed by the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) that provides a central portal to browse and request services from CTSC cores. 

We are actively involved in the development and open governance structure through providing valued feedback and knowledge to MUSC. MUSC has further strengthened our collaboration by inviting us to participate on a supplement to develop a cloud version of SPARC for use at all CTSAs.
