The NIH Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS) announces the availability of funds for Administrative Supplements to certain institutional research training, career development, or research education awards (see eligibility below). The funds will support the development and implementation of curricular or training activities at the interface of information science, artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML), and biomedical sciences to develop the competencies and skills needed to make biomedical data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) and AI/ML-ready. For the purposes of this Notice, AI/ML is inclusive of machine learning (ML), deep learning (DL), and neural networks (NN).
This Notice will support creative, educational activities to develop the competencies and skills needed to make biomedical data FAIR and AI/ML-ready with a primary focus on:
- Curriculum development: exportable training modules and integrated training plans
- Training: events or other educational experiences where the structure and outputs are shared
All curriculum and training offerings developed must be aligned with NOT-OD-20-031, "Notice of NIH's Interest in Diversity".
Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss potential requests with their Institute/Center (IC) Program Official before submitting the supplement request.
