The Web Platforms team, in conjunction with the Office of Communications and External Relations (OCER), provides support for a wide array of HMS web properties, including the HMS flagship site,, department/center/core sites, and lab websites. Services offered include hosting for self-managed websites, design and development of websites to be hosted on one of our Drupal CMS platforms, and web consulting services.
