Announcing the 2023 DataWorks! Prize Winners

Thursday, February 1, 2024

In early 2023, ODSS partnered with the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) to launch the second annual DataWorks! Prize to highlight examples of innovative data sharing and reuse.

This year, 39 teams registered for the challenge to demonstrate their accomplishments. The 218 team members came from a wide variety of disciplines, including biochemistry, clinical research, genomics, immunology, molecular biology, neuroscience, and more.

Representatives from the grand prize-winning team will present at the Data Sharing and Reuse Seminar series on Friday, Feb. 9, 2024.
