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.

At this time, we have enough licenses to go around, so that we have decided to not charge other users at CCHMC to use these licenses.  If at some time usage overcomes available licenses, we will consider applying a very reasonable chargeback.

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