On behalf of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Library of Medicine (NLM) seeks community input on new data science research initiatives that could address key challenges currently faced by researchers, clinicians, administrators, and others, in all areas of biomedical, social/behavioral and health-related research. The field of data science is broad in scope, encompassing approaches for the generation, characterization, management, storage, analysis, visualization, integration and use of large, heterogeneous data sets that have relevance to health and biomedicine. Data science undergirds the broad and interdependent objectives of the NIH Strategic Plan.
Information about data science research directions that could lead to breakthroughs in any or all NIH interest areas is welcomed, whether applicable across wide swaths of health and biomedicine, or focused on particular research domains.
NLM requests information on the three focal areas listed below:
Within these general topic areas, or others related to data science in health and biomedicine, NLM invites researchers, clinicians, organizations, industry representatives and other interested parties to provide input on:
