Data Science in Biomedicine Interest Group

The goal of the NIH Data Science Interest Group (SIG) is to foster the growing community of biomedical data scientists at NIH and elsewhere through improving communications, providing a forum for scientific discussions, and catalyzing collaborations. The Data Science SIG will work with established SIGs and community groups that focus on components of data science, to coordinate activities and increase awareness of opportunities in data science. This interest group will engage scientists from across the NIH, both intramural and extramural, and elsewhere, by meeting on campus, sometimes in conjunction with other SIGs. The group will host a seminar series of internal and external speakers, organize an annual poster session, and collect user input on what workshops/courses are needed at NIH. Additional activities depend on the interests of the group.

Announcements and current events and related activities, as well as links to recordings and slides from select events, will be posted at the SIG homepage at
