The mission of EP is to provide grants for research projects, resources, and career development in the fields of biomedical informatics and data science. To make this happen, a lot goes on behind the scenes. Here's a sneak peek behind the NOFO curtain...
Thanks to the time and talent of an outstanding interdisciplinary team of librarians and technical specialists, NLM expanded its digitized offerings of historically significant journals and their articles. Come explore what’s old—and new discoveries—at the world’s largest biomedical library!
"You might be thinking that providing access to research products and processes sounds a lot like what NLM does," writes Dr. Lisa Federer in this week's blog, "and you’d be right!" Learn how NLM advances open science, a concept at the heart of what NLM has been doing since its founding nearly 200 years ago.
This month marks the reissuing of NIH’s SBIR and STTR program funding opportunity announcements. In celebration, I want to highlight this unique program and encourage those focused on developing cutting-edge solutions in the field of biomedical informatics to apply.
Beyond the vast portfolio of products and services that NLM provides (‘what’), how do we seek to identify impact and benefit to the American people (‘so what’)? And in the face of observed outcomes and impacts (the results and effects of our products, services, and research), what should we do next? How do we learn from the data and information about our efforts to advance excellence and innovation at NLM (‘now what’)?
NLM has advanced biomedicine and public health by acquiring, organizing, preserving, and disseminating knowledge that is essential to research, medicine, and health. We must ensure information being shared and used for research is useful to those who use it, and the answer lies in interoperability.
NLM has completed or made progress on all recommendations made by the Blue Ribbon Panel to call attention to the excellent research being done by NLM’s 17 investigators and to foster dialogue across the branches. Here are some examples of how NLM is implementing these recommendations...
One fascinating question my group asked was, might it be possible to peer into the distant past and figure out what viruses were infecting our distant ancestors? Our conclusions were rather remarkable.
Did you know? The NLM Extramural Programs division helps authors publish book-length manuscripts and other scholarly works of value on academic and public health policy topics important to health professionals. Learn more about the program and how to apply!
Meet Dr. Michael Chiang! After he planned for a career as an engineer, he found that his interest in machines could be applied to medicine and help treat people with disease. So he switched his focus (if you will!) to vision science before joining NIH as Director of NEI in November 2020.
