Rural Drug Addiction Research Center Completes Renovation of a State-of-the-Art Collaboration Space

The Rural Drug Addiction Research (RDAR) Center, has completed the renovation of approximately 4,500 square feet of the fourth floor of the College of Arts and Science Building located on the city campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

This state-of-the-art collaboration space houses RDAR’s central administrative office, collaborative research rooms, a large 50 person conference room, and the Longitudinal Networks Core (LNC) while providing easy access to LNC by Center members, potential collaborators and project leaders from around campus.

The renovated space includes a secure computer facility to house:

1) a Secure Computer Facility to house RDAR’s Open Dynamic Interaction Network (ODIN) platform, LNC’s cutting-edge cohort tracking and retention software;

2) a mobile phone Research Laboratory, which will enable future modifications of the ODIN platform to include novel biomarker and quantified-self technologies; and

3) a Cohort Monitoring Room designed to provide researchers a flexible, interactive workspace in which to process and visualize ODIN-collected data. The renovated space will serve as the meeting place for all their bi-weekly guest speaker series and future center meetings.
