Guest post by Virginia Meyer, PhD, Training Director for the Intramural Research Program, National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
Every year, NLM’s Intramural Research Program (IRP) hosts its Data Science and Informatics (DSI) Scholars Program, which is open to undergraduate and graduate students from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented groups who are pursuing biomedical informatics training and research opportunities in computer science and related fields. I invite you to meet six of this year’s interns and learn about the innovative research they are doing in the NLM IRP!
