One thing I’ve learned as a federal employee is that nothing at work ever happens all alone. As I look to retirement from NIH and federal service at the end of this month, I invite you to look backward at what we have accomplished together and look forward to the next journey for NLM!
Every year, NLM’s IRP hosts its Data Science and Informatics Scholars Program, which is open to undergraduate students from diverse and underrepresented groups who are pursuing biomedical informatics training and research opportunities in computer science and related fields. Meet six of this year’s interns and learn about the innovative research they are doing in the NLM IRP!
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...
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.
As part of our ongoing Meet the NLM Investigators series, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Nash Rochman, PhD, an Independent Research Scholar in NLM’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Computational Biology Branch and member of the NLM Intramural Research Program.
Let’s meet Zhiyong Lu, PhD, a Senior Investigator for our National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) Computational Biology Branch and member of the NLM Intramural Research Program. He is leading a team of research scientists to harness the power of machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI) to advance the ways our products and services work—advancements … Continue reading Meet the NLM Investigators: Dr. Zhiyong Lu is Teaching Computers to Think Like Scientists
Guest post by Virginia Meyer, PhD, Training Director for the Intramural Research Program, National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. Working at NLM means being at the forefront of innovation in the rapidly evolving fields of data science and informatics. Within that environment, the NLM Intramural Research Program (IRP) is dedicated to supporting individuals … Continue reading Meet the Next Generation of Leaders Advancing Data Science and Informatics at NLM
