Smells like e-Science? Congratulations to Sally Gore!
NLM awards Informationist supplement grants to 7 NIH researchers.
Informationist Sally Gore, Soutter Library will provide metadata, database design and retrieval advice to the technical team of Roger Luckmann’s project titled “Promoting Breast Cancer Screening in Non-Adherent Women”. Sally will assist investigators in identifying key information technology issues in the existing tracking system; work with them on a systematic review, provide customized instruction to the team, and support public access submission. The grant involves a 3-arm randomized trial comparing 2 forms of outreach to women who are due for a screening mammogram. The interventions will run for 4 years and already involves a multidisciplinary research team including primary care, informatics, counseling and behavioral sciences.
