Educational Hub for Enhancing Diversity in Computational Genomics and Data Science (U24 Clinical Trials Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The overarching purpose of this initiative is to leverage the NHGRI-funded Genomic Data Science Analysis, Visualization and Informatics Lab-space (AnVIL) and other NIH cloud-based platforms, to enhance the diversity of individuals who have access to educational and research opportunities in computational genomics and data science (CGDS), including those from underrepresented groups. This initiative will focus on opportunities at the undergraduate and master’s degree level. The intent of this specific funding opportunity is to create a CGDS educational hub which will support activities to increase awareness of CGDS and cloud computing concepts, and address barriers to effective CGDS education. The Hub will coordinate with NIH cloud computing platforms to organize workshops, collect stakeholder input, disseminate materials, evaluate educational opportunities and provide logistical support.
