A hybrid academic program consisting of online team-building activities and a virtual seminar series that lead-up to an all-expenses-paid, 5-day grant-writing workshop at Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego, California! Working under the direction of professional facilitators and the guidance of experienced mentors, teams at this year’s lab will develop interdisciplinary projects to generate creative strategies on the use of data science approaches for creating new strategic partnerships between AI developers, biomedical researchers, and educators. In addition, the lab will include opportunities for learning about NIH and NSF funding through direct interaction with program officers.

Why should I apply?
The BDSIL is a fantastic (and free!) networking and grant-writing opportunity that fosters authentic collaboration between early career researchers with guidance from experienced mentors and NIH officials. In the words of Director Dr. Jack Van Horn, “We help to encourage interdisciplinary teams to think differently, spark new ideas, develop novel research projects, challenge themselves, and to be innovative.”
