NSF Program Solicitation: Quantitative Approaches to Biomed. Big Data (QuBBD)

The NIH Big Data to Knowledge Initiative (BD2K, https://datascience.nih.gov/bd2k), together with the Division of Mathematical Sciences at NSF, announces the release of a new program solicitation (NSF 16-573)

This program is designed to support novel mathematical, statistical, or computational approaches to biomedical big data challenges. Collaborative efforts that bring together quantitative scientists and biomedical researchers are a requirement for this program and must be convincingly demonstrated in the proposal. The program is designed to foster and support new inter- and multi-disciplinary teams of investigators. The due date for full proposals is September 28, 2016.

BD2K is a trans-NIH initiative that aims to support advances in data science, other quantitative sciences, and training that are needed for the effective use of big data in biomedical research. Interested applicants are encouraged to join the BD2K listserv (https://list.nih.gov/cgi-bin/wa.exe?SUBED1=bd2kupdates&A=1) to receive the most up-to- date information about BD2K events and funding opportunities. Please share this opportunity with your interested scientific communities.
