Data & Doughnuts: A Roundtable Discussion with Dr. Philip Bourne, April 20, 2016.
OHSU students and postdocs were invited to discuss the current and future states of data science and policy with Dr. Bourne, Associate Director for Data Science at the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Bourne and his team oversee and provide a vision for data science at the NIH, including the sharing and sustainability of data and tools, and the Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative. Additional guests included, Mark Hahnel, the founder of Figshare, and Bastian Greshake, the co-founder of OpenSNP. With doughnuts and coffee in hand, OHSU’s early career researchers had the opportunity to engage with these leaders and address the open science questions and issues that matter to them most.
