The power of big data has the potential to transform immune-mediated and infectious disease research. Realizing this potential requires careful consideration of multiple bioethical concerns, including data privacy, bias, evolving technologies, and global data from diverse communities around the globe. Join our discussion of the ethical, legal, and social implications (ELSI) of data science as recent and future innovations shape immune-mediated and infectious disease research.

You can register now for the webinar Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications of Harnessing Data To Advance Immune-Mediated and Infectious Disease Research on Friday, April 16, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time. During the webinar, our expert panel will consider three ELSI-related topics, share their perspectives, and frame issues for the immune-mediated and infectious disease research community to consider and address.

The overall webinar series will serve as a platform for collaborating, generating ideas, and networking among participants and provide foundational materials to inform the prospective role of data science in advancing NIAID’s mission. Participants will have the opportunity to share insights on the current landscape of data science research and development, as well as offer ideas to shape the future of data-driven immune-mediated and infectious diseases research using our crowd-source platform NIAID Data Science.
