ELIXIR is honoured to welcome two distinguished speakers from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) as part of its Webinar Series:
Susan Gregurick is the NIH Associate Director for Data Science and the Director of the Office Data Science Strategy leading the efforts to realise the vision set forth in the NIH Strategic Plan for Data Science.
Ishwar Chandramouliswaran is Program Director and technical lead for the strategy, planning, coordination and oversight of establishing a “FAIR” data and repository ecosystem.
Together, they will present on Enabling a Data Ecosystem at the National Institutes of Health:
The complexity and volume of basic, translational, and clinical research data generated by NIH supported and conducted research continues to rapidly increase, even more so in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. To take full advantage of these data, NIH must integrate the collection, storage, analysis, use, and sharing of these data to ensure they are discoverable, interoperable, and reusable according to FAIR practices.
This talk will showcase some of the key activities led and coordinated by the Office of Data Science Strategy to realise the vision for a modernised and integrated biomedical data ecosystem including the development of a diverse data science workforce and building strategic partnerships in emerging technologies.
