Part of HuBMAP, the purpose of this virtual Innovation Lab is to explore ways that researchers might apply data driven and mechanistic modeling approaches to the study and eventual treatment of cancer. It will bring together 25 researchers from the fields of cancer biology, data science, mathematics, computer science, systems biology, and translational research. It […]
The Envisioning Computational Innovations for Cancer Challenges (ECICC) Digital Twin Ideas Lab begins July 6, 2020 and is jointly sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and the Department of Energy. It will bring together 30 scientists and clinicians from across cancer research, high powered computing, artificial intelligence disciplines, and beyond to develop innovative research project […]
The 2020-2021 BDSIL, hosted by the University of Virginia, will bring together researchers at the forefronts of large-scale data analytics and neuroscience to identify challenges in brain science that can be addressed with an interdisciplinary approach and create the innovative solutions to meet those challenges. BDSIL begins October 2, 2020 and culminates in an in-person […]
Many scientific fields have yet to realize the potential of Big Data. That’s where NSF’s Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) comes in —
from improving our chances of detecting dark matter to resolving the tree of life. The HDR All-hands meeting brought together principal investigators to share best practices and discuss how to grow the community.
It takes more than innovative science to get funding for basic research these days. Researchers applying for grants must also demonstrate the “So what?” of their science. In addition to convincing grant reviewers of the intellectual merit of their proposals, scientists must also show the potential for broader impacts and how they plan to work […]
In recent months, some scientists have found themselves asking: “Do we let this pandemic slow down the science that could help people live healthier lives?” Last month, organizers, mentors and 29 researchers decided the answer was ‘no’ and showed up for the first all-virtual Ideas Lab, an experiment in itself. The lab was hosted by […]
Researchers who collaborate with others must be able to describe and discuss their work with fellow scientists, both within and outside their area of expertise. We’ve noticed that those who work best on the cross-disciplinary teams that form at KI events are not just translators, but ambassadors. They are sensitive to differences in language and […]
To complete this assignment, we asked BSP students to pick four prompts from three lists and complete the sentences. Then, they were asked to use those three parts to craft their own unique stories. Here’s the example I gave them using my own story. Prompt Writing: Part 1 I grew up in a dysfunctional family. […]
Sharing Best Practices in Labor and Delivery in a Post-COVID-19 Environment is a virtual event that will consist of four Micro Labs over a six-week period starting in mid-June. Ariadne Labs will bring together nurses and obstetricians to discuss changes in practice and how best to serve mothers and newborns moving forward.
University of Nebraska, Lincoln is taking on a seven-step process to identify Grand Challenges its faculty researchers are best positioned to address. Last year, UNL celebrated 150 years of research. The Grand Challenges are meant to chart the future of research on campus. The event starts with a virtual event on June 5, two virtual […]
