TALK TITLE: Connecting Data, Enhancing Software, and Creating a Digital Data Health Ecosystem
The NIH works to maximize opportunities that data science can bring to aid in our mission of improving the health and wellbeing of all US citizens. NIH’s strategic plan for data science serves as a north star to optimizing data storage, creating connected data resources, modernizing our data repository ecosystem, sustaining software development, expanding the national data science workforce, and supporting the NIH data management and sharing policy. Inspired by the strategic plan, and in partnership with colleagues from across the NIH Institutes and Centers, this talk highlights work to catalyze new data science capabilities in biomedical data science.
