The emerging field of personal health informatics strives to bridge the gap between personally generated health data and individuals receiving real-time information to make informed decisions about their health. Check out our notice of funding opportunity!
With support from NLM funding, scientists from Stanford University have pioneered a groundbreaking medical initiative called the "Green Button." This technology will empower clinicians to make informed decisions about patient care and transforming the landscape of medical practice.
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!
This summer the United States is experiencing an unprecedented heat wave, with temperatures exceeding 100 degrees for days on end across the country. When health challenges emerge, people often turn to libraries as sources of information and support. NLM is proud of its resources that link people to the trusted health information they need.
"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.
SDOH research is essential to fulfilling NIH’s mission of enhancing health for all people. The progress in recent years has increased the depth and breadth of the NIH SDOH research portfolio, but there is more to be done. Read more about how we're integrating and accelerating SDOH research across NIH.
Recently, Meryl and I visited in person with the trainees at Gallaudet University, where we were challenged to consider how language affects terminology and knowledge formalization, especially when engaging with the Deaf community.
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.
The 2023 DataWorks! Prize Challenge is underway, building off the successes of its first year. The challenge is sponsored by the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy, in partnership with the FASEB. We truly hope that you’ll help others enhance their data management practices by sharing your wisdom and recipes.
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’)?
