The CIBR Center along with the Baylor College of Medicine Office of Information Technology (OIT) department, has obtained a Baylor-wide license for MATLAB and 31 toolboxes for all Baylor faculty, staff, postdocs and graduate students.

Baylor College of Medicine has a Campus-Wide License for MATLAB, Simulink, and add-on products. Faculty, researchers, and students may use these products for teaching, research, and learning. The license allows individuals to install the products on university-owned equipment, as well as personally owned computers.

In addition, we now have MATLAB Parallel Server licenses to perform computations on High Performance Clusters. To obtain a MATLAB Parallel Server license, send an email through our contact form.
