Data Symposium 2012
The research community’s need for progressively granular results has driven the development of new instrumentation, techniques and electronic health records that are overwhelming researchers with volumes of data. Meanwhile, library informatics professionals, IT service providers and funding agencies face unprecedented, and in some cases legislated, data lifecycle management challenges. Because these challenges cannot be addressed in isolation, the symposium has invited eight experts from U.S. funding agencies, national laboratories, and research institutes including Brian Athey PhD, Director of Academic Informatics and Information Technology at the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR).
CTSI and the Southeast Wisconsin High Performance Cyberinfrastructure (SeWHiP) invite the research community to participate in a one-day symposium at the Blood Research Institute on March 1, 2012 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Experts in translational bioinformatics, biomedical modeling and data-intensive scholarship will join representatives from NIH and NSF to explore solutions to the challenges associated with storing, accessing, visualizing, sharing, integrating and scaling research data. The symposium is free, registration is required at www.sewhip.org.
