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...
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.
