The Office of Data Science provides guidance and strategies in the acquisition, development, and deployment of scientific data and knowledge management solutions at NIEHS. It is part of the institute’s Division of the National Toxicology Program, which is a team-based scientific organization that aims to improve public health through development of data and knowledge that are translatable, predictive, and timely.
The goals of the Office of Data Science are to accelerate scientific discovery, foster collaborative research, and ultimately improve public health through the application of scientific data and knowledge management in the environmental health sciences.
The Office achieves these goals through a data science and data management program that:
- Develops and implement data science training opportunities.
- Develops and support policies and standards for data integration and harmonization.
- Enhances researchers’ ability to find, access, interoperate, and reuse data.
- Facilitates transformation of data and information into user-friendly, knowledge-based platforms.
- Represents NIEHS in trans-National Institutes of Health and interagency data science and knowledge management activities.
