NIAID Data Science Seminar Series
Harnessing the Power of Data for Immune-Mediated and Infectious Disease Research - An Expert Panel Discussion
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is excited to advance discovery and innovation in infectious diseases and immune-mediated disorders research by leveraging data and data science approaches. Toward this end, NIAID will conduct a series of ideas and innovation webinars that bring together experts and stakeholders in data science, infectious disease, immunology, and immune-mediated disorders.
Through the webinar series, participants will have the opportunity to provide insights into the current landscape of data science research and development, as well as offer ideas that promise to shape the future of data-driven immune-mediated and infectious disease research. The webinar series will serve as a platform for collaboration, idea generation, and networking among participants and generate foundational materials that is expected to inform the prospective role of data science in advancing NIAID’s mission.
