July Data Sharing and Reuse Seminar

Friday, July 12, 2024

Dr. Satra Ghosh will present The Transformative Potential and Challenges of Open Data and Technologies in Neuroscience on July 12, 2024, at 12 p.m.

About the Seminar

Open data can democratize neuroscience research by cultivating an ecosystem for neuroscientists that includes robust platforms and tools to share, analyze, and interpret data, transforming it through an information landscape to knowledge. This connection can help accelerate the discovery and understanding of neural systems and their impact on human health and behavior. These efforts involve necessary ethical considerations, call for diverse perspectives, and require sustainable stewardship of neuroscience resources. This talk will use examples from various Brain Research Through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies® (BRAIN) Initiative projects—such as the Distributed Archives for Neurophysiology Data Integration (DANDI) platform, BRAIN Initiative Cell Atlas Network (BICAN), BRAIN Initiative Connectivity Across Scales (BRAIN CONNECTS) program, and others—to illustrate how an open ecosystem can foster a community in which data and knowledge are closely connected and form a computable substrate for exploration, discovery, and translation.

About the Seminar Series

The seminar is open to the public and registration is required each month. Individuals who need interpreting services and/or other reasonable accommodations to participate in this event should contact Janiya Peters at 301-670-4990. Requests should be made at least five days in advance of the event.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Data Science Strategy hosts this seminar series to highlight exemplars of data sharing and reuse on the second Friday of each month at noon ET. The monthly series highlights researchers who have taken existing data and found clever ways to reuse the data or generate new findings. A different NIH institute or center will also share its data science activities each month.
