Love Data Week 2023 Starts Monday, Feb 13!

Love Data Week (Feb. 13 to 17) is an international celebration of all things data! Each year, the Center for Data and Bioinformation Services (CDABS) at the Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HSHSL) looks forward to engaging our community on issues like data management, sharing, wrangling, and visualization, as well as open and reproducible science.

This year for Love Data Week we are focused on the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy that recently came into effect January 25, 2023. If you will be submitting an NIH grant application in the near future, CDABS is here to help! Be sure to check out our new resource guide on the topic.

Navigating the New NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy with ICPSR’s NIH-funded Projects: DSDR, NACDA, and NAHDAP, Mon. Feb. 13 1:00pm ET

Please join us for a webinar about ICPSR’s NIH-funded Projects: DSDR, NACDA, and NAHDAP. Data Sharing for Demographic Research (DSDR) is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. DSDR advances population health and human development research by offering access to data on mother and child health, health disparities, and the human lifecycle for secondary analysis. NACDA is the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging and is funded by the National Institute on Aging. For nearly 40 years, NACDA has sought to support behavioral and social science research on healthy aging worldwide by making longitudinal data resources freely available. The National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP) is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). Since 2009, NAHDAP’s mission has been to facilitate research on drug addiction and HIV infection by acquiring, enhancing, preserving, and sharing data.  Registration link
