On January 6, NIH announced that National Library of Medicine (NLM) Director Patricia Flatley Brennan, RN, PhD will assume an additional role as NIH Interim Associate Director for Data Science (ADDS).
The ADDS and team provide input to the overall NIH vision and actions undertaken by each of the 27 Institutes and Centers in support of biomedical research as a digital enterprise.
Among other duties, the office oversees the Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative, stimulating the best developments in the data science community.
This year will see the transition of trans-NIH data science initiatives to NLM, with the operational oversight of the BD2K initiatives being housed within the Common Funds programs in the
Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI). This change builds on the recommendations by the NLM Working Group Report to the NIH Director,
makes concrete steps towards the vision of NLM’s future proclaimed in the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director’s report — that the NLM become the “epicenter of data science for the NIH.”
