Broad Institute partners with OpenScholar to offer customizable website options for the Broad Institute community. OpenScholar sites offer the ability to build a public website based on a set of custom themes in a content management system (CMS).
These themes align with the Broad Institute style guide and integrate with the look and feel of broadinstitute.org. The site offers teams direct control of their content — including photos and graphics, text, profiles, and announcements. We’ll take care of cloud hosting, system administration and security updates in the background.
