Highlighted NIH Data Science Community Engagement Activities

Introduction

The National Institutes of Health hosts and supports a rich variety of data science activities across the NIH campus as well as both nationally and internationally.  The following events are part of the ongoing data science community outreach activities sponsored by the NIH Office of the Associate Director for Data Science, BD2K, and other NIH Institutes and Centers.

The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science

The BD2K Guide to the Fundamentals of Data Science is a series of online lectures given by experts from across the country covering a range of diverse topics in data science. This course is an introductory overview that assumes no prior knowledge or understanding of data science. This lecture series is a joint effort between the BD2K Training Coordinating Center (BD2K TCC), the BD2K Centers Coordination Center (BD2K CCC), and the NIH Associate Director of Data Science. For the most up-to-date information about the series and to view archived presentations, go to: http://www.bigdatau.org/data-science-seminars.

The series will run every Friday, through May 19, 2017, from 12:00pm – 1:00pm ET | 9:00am - 10:00am PT.

All sessions will be streamed live and archived for on demand public viewing.
