About Data Science at NIAID

Data science methods and technologies have significantly accelerated research on infectious- and immune-mediated diseases. NIAID aims to further advance data science by improving data access and use, applying computational methods, fostering an interdisciplinary research community, and implementing a policy framework that maximizes data sharing while protecting the privacy of patients and research participants.

Office of Data Science and Emerging Technologies

The Office of Data Science and Emerging Technologies (ODSET) coordinates the development and implementation of NIAID’s data science strategy across the Intramural and Extramural Divisions. The overall goal of the office is to enable the efficient use of data and computational methods to better understand, treat, and ultimately prevent infectious, immunologic, and allergic diseases.
