Abstract:

Dr. Dunn will give a retrospective of the development of data science at the NIH over the last few years, describing how it has evolved along with and in response to the development of data science in the broader scientific community. She will describe a major trans-NIH program, the Big Data to Knowledge Initiative, led by the NIH Associate Director for Data Science (ADDS), as well as the additional efforts of the ADDS office towards enabling the efficient management of biomedical Big Data.
