Lab/Research Websites

The University of Illinois provides Publish.Illinois.Edu (PIE) as a free, Illinois-themed WordPress website platform available for use by anyone with a U of I netid. AHS Marketing and Communications highly recommends utilizing PIE for lab/research websites.

Please consult this page for more information about PIE and links to training materials, and contact AHS Marcom if you require assistance with setup. If your research site is currently on another platform and you’d like it migrated to PIE, AHS Marcom can assist with the transition.
