Introducing the NN/LM DOCLINE Coordination Office

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Greetings DOCLINE Community,

My name is Ashley Cuffia, and I am the Coordinator for the new NN/LM DOCLINE Coordination Office.

Starting on May 1st, 2016, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine user support for DOCLINE will be managed by the NN/LM DOCLINE Coordination Office (NDCO). This office is hosted by the Southeastern/Atlantic Region at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library of the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus. This new national office will combine all customer service of DOCLINE into one office thereby eliminating the need for each regional office to provide support. In addition to handling the day-to-day customer support of DOCLINE, NDCO will also provide DOCLINE training and LinkOut assistance.

The NN/LM will be eliminating all 1-800 service, so a dedicated telephone number and email address have been created for NDCO, so if you have any questions or need assistance, please contact me at (410)706-4173 or email DOCLINE@hshsl.umaryland.edu.

The NDCO office will be open 9:00 AM ET through 7:00 PM ET, to allow for expanded coverage.

I am looking forward to this great opportunity to serve the DOCLINE community.

NLM Announces Reissuance of Career Development Award in Biomedical Informatics and Data Science (K01)

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Career Development Award in Biomedical Informatics (K01) is intended to provide support for promising junior investigators as they launch their research careers in biomedical informatics research and data science. NLM supports research career development in healthcare/clinical informatics, translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics and public health informatics. We define informatics as the intersection of computer science, information science, data science and social/behavioral sciences with one or more biomedical application domains. Application domains of interest include health care delivery and consumer health, translation of basic biological research to health outcomes, population medicine and public health, and the organization, analysis and use of biomedical big data. Regardless of the application domain, the research career focus should be informatics. The award is intended to promote the career development of informatics researchers who intend to make a long term commitment to biomedical informatics research. K01 awardees are expected to apply for NIH or other independent research grant support (R01 or equivalent) during the final year of the award. Candidates who received their training at one of NLM’s university-based biomedical informatics training programs are encouraged to apply.

Candidates for this award must have a research or health-professional doctoral degree or equivalent. Junior investigators (i.e. early stage of faculty positions within three years of initial appointments at time of application submission or resubmission) are eligible for this award and will have completed their research training. At the time of award, the institution must demonstrate that the applicant will have the academic title, space and other resources necessary to apply for research project grant (e.g., R01) level funding.

The candidates must have research experience (length of time may vary) and be committed to developing into independent biomedical investigators in research areas relevant to the mission of the NLM.  The program is not intended to support additional postdoctoral training and is not intended to support career changes from non-research to research careers for individuals without prior research training.

Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the NLM Program Officer relevant to their research area before preparing an application to discuss the relevance of the proposed research to NLM’s current research priorities and for guidance on the proposed research and career development plans.
