Re: Firewalls and Research

We've had one for several years. Firewalls cause problems without
question, but they can be addressed. I'm not aware of any negative
impact on our ability to obtain a grant. Conversely, ensuring the
security and privacy of patient information is an important
consideration for research that requires access to this sensitive data.

Hi all,
        I would like to get a feel for how many .edu facilities
currently
have firewalls at their border.  If you have a firewall at your border,
how
has it affected your scientists and researchers ability to do research
and
obtain funding?  Thanks in advance.
