Biomedical Informatics and the Imaging Research Center (IRC) recently merged their Matlab licenses, resulting in significant cost saving and an increase in the overall number of floating licenses to share. This move also provides both sets of users with more toolboxes.

We currently have floating licenses for the following toolboxes: Bioinformatics, Curve Fitting, Distributed Computing, Image Acquisition, Image Processing, Compiler, Neural Networks, Optimization, Signal Processing, Splines, Statistics, and Wavelets.

See the license allocation page for more information. If you have difficulties accessing the licenses, send an email to
