Event Details

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is excited to advance discovery and innovation in infectious diseases and immune-mediated disorders research by leveraging data and data science approaches. Towards this end, NIAID will conduct a series of ideas and innovation webinars that bring together experts and stakeholders in data science, infectious diseases, immunology, and immune-mediated disorders.

Through the webinar series, participants will have the opportunity to provide insights into the current landscape of data science research and development, as well as offer ideas that promise to shape the future of data-driven immune-mediated and infectious disease research. The webinar series will serve as a platform for collaboration, idea generation, and networking among participants and generate foundational materials that is expected to inform the prospective role of data science in advancing NIAID’s mission.

Our expert panel will engage in a moderated discussion following short talks where they will define the traditional silos that may impede broad data sharing and highlight examples of where breaking those silos facilitated advancement that otherwise could not have been achieved.

Invited Speakers include Dr. Raphael Gottardo (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center), Dr. Alexa McCray (Harvard Medical School), Dr. Ewan Harrison (University of Cambridge). Moderated by Dr. Stephany Duda (Vanderbilt University) and Dr. Purvesh Khatri (Stanford University).
