Data Science

NIH’s expectations with regard to sharing biomedical research data are changing. For years, biomedical researchers funded by NIH have been required to make their data publicly available, but NIH is now promoting “FAIR” data, that is, data must be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. What does that mean for your data? We’ll provide a brief overview of the new expectations. Our plenary speaker will then discuss opportunities for you to obtain Census level data to benefit your research. Finally, we will have a few oral presentations and a speed poster session.
