August 31, 2020 - September 04, 2020
Webinar

Data are only as useful as the insights we can glean from them. How might recent advances in interactive media and data visualization help illuminate and solve pertinent challenges in cancer research? NCI is organizing a series of virtual events to explore these questions and spark new collaborations with experts in cancer research, data visualization, user-experience, virtual/augmented reality, and game design/development.

2020 Leiter Lecture: "Digital Epidemiology and the COVID-19 Pandemic"

Dr. John Brownstein, professor of biomedical informatics at Harvard Medical School and chief innovation officer of Boston Children's Hospital, will deliver the 2020 National Library of Medicine (NLM)/Medical Library Association (MLA) Leiter Lecture, “Digital Epidemiology and the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

Artificial Intelligence Virtual Boot Camp, August 3-6, 2020
August 03, 2020 - August 06, 2020
VideoCast

The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) will hold a 4-day virtual boot camp to explore the impact that artificial intelligence (AI) has in the evolving healthcare environment and overall efforts to improve the quality of care for patients and families. The goal is to explore basic AI principles and ways clinicians can team with data scientists to conduct research to address health-related issues.
