Enabling NIH’s Future Research and Discoveries
Tremendous advances in technical capabilities are enabling researchers to capture and analyze new kinds of biomedical data using innovative methods and tools. Things unimaginable decades ago are becoming mainstream, and the impacts on health research and care delivery are profound.
New tools and rapidly evolving methods are allowing researchers to gain a deeper understanding of adverse health conditions and make discoveries for new treatments and cures. For example, NIH’s Precision Medicine Initiative, the Cancer Moonshot, and the Brain Initiative depend on continued technology advances to accelerate basic, translational, and clinical research discoveries. Advanced machine learning techniques, cognitive computing, adaptive software, and immersive analytics are just a few examples of next generation technologies that are disrupting traditional ways of thinking and working. Standards for connecting, sharing information, and coordinating actions across platforms will make it easier for researchers to generate big data answers to complex challenges. Highlights of several key programs and technology related initiatives will be shared.
