We are delighted to welcome our summer undergraduate college biomedical informatics and data science summer interns. This year’s program is funded and organized around two grants and their projects:
- National Library of Medicine (NLM) Short-Term Research Education Experiences to Attract Talented Students to Biomedical Informatics/Data Science Careers and Enhance Diversity, National Library of Medicine.
- Bridge2AI Voice Summer School, National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund
Students in the NLM program will work on a research project led by a mentor who is a faculty member in our department, while students in the Voice AI Summer School will work on projects using the dataset being developed for the voice-as-a-biomarker project. Students from both programs will participate in a course in biomedical informatics, a health data ethics and equity seminar, and various career development activities.
