Carnegie Mellon University Cloud Lab

Welcome to the future of research

Bring your research to the next level. Based on a concept pioneered by two CMU alumni, their company Emerald Cloud Lab (ECL) is the world’s first Academic Cloud Lab that allows you to remotely control a complete life sciences laboratory from your computer.

Course Plan

To learn more about the future of research, register for the Cloud Lab Introduction sessions. They will allow you to understand how the Cloud Lab operates. Then, you will be ready to take the full Cloud Lab training, enabling active use of the Cloud Lab platform.  More Information on Demonstration Introduction Sessions »

Upon completing all three initial sessions, users will be invited to register for different trainings and courses. These training sessions will allow you to understand how to design, command, run, explore, analyze and share your data using the Cloud Lab platform and the Open Science tools.
