Revisions to Add Biomedical Big Data Training to Active NLM Institutional Training Grants in Biomedical Informatics (T15)


Thursday, July 28, 2016

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit revisions (competitive supplements) to add a Big Data Science track to active T15 institutional training grants for the expressed purpose of training the next generation of scientists who will develop computational and quantitative approaches and tools needed by the biomedical research community to work with biomedical Big Data in the biomedical sciences (see definition under Funding Opportunity Description). This proposed training initiative should prepare qualified individuals for careers in developing new technologies and methods that will allow biomedical researchers to maximize the value of the growing volume and complexity of biomedical data.

Applicants are encouraged to utilize all appropriate expertise for the purpose of training Big Data scientists, whether that expertise lies within one or more institutions or within the industrial or public sectors. Applicants are also encouraged to consider whether other BD2K training FOAs, such as RFA-HG-14-004 for new T32 applications and RFA-HG-14-005 for revisions to T32 programs, are a good fit to the proposed training program. A complete list of BD2K FOAs can be found at
