About this webinar series

Scientific data management is undergoing revolutionary changes and fresh opportunities are emerging. The National Institutes of Health released new scientific data management requirements, scientific data, repositories, and other opportunities are changing publication practices, and innovative methods are emerging for data analysis transforming biomedical research. While this is happening, greater volumes of well curated and cleaned datasets are becoming available for use by researchers.

The purpose of this three-part, action-oriented data science webinar series is providing an update on the latest developments and offer practical solutions. The intended audience includes biomedical researchers, health sciences librarians, health informaticians, and other health professionals.
