Request from the NHGRI Director | Request for Information (RFI) on draft NIH Strategic Plan for Data Science

March 07, 2018 - 03:35PM - by kayla.m.howell

Please find below a special note from the NHGRI Director, Eric Green. ******************************************************************** Dear NHGRI Grantee: In order to capitalize on the opportunities presented by advances in data science, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is developing a Strategic Plan for Data Science. This plan describes NIH’s overarching goals, strategic objectives, and implementation tactics for promoting the modernization of the NIH-funded biomedical data science ecosystem. As part of the planning process, NIH has published a Request for Information (RFI) to seek input from stakeholders, including members of the scientific community, academic institutions, the private sector, health professionals, professional societies, advocacy groups, patient communities, as well as other interested members of the public. This Strategic Plan and the entire biomedical data science ecosystem is obviously of profound relevance to NHGRI, our research programs, and the entire field of genomics. We very much want any input to help NIH with this important assignment. As such, we invite your comments and suggestions on the draft NIH Strategic Plan for Data Science. Request for Information (RFI): Soliciting Input for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Strategic Plan for Data Science Notice Number: NOT-OD-18-134 Key Dates Release Date: March 5, 2018 Response Date: April 2, 2018 Thanks very much for your thoughts and input! All the best, Eric Eric Green, M.D., Ph.D. Director, National Human Genome Research Institute National Institutes of Health
