We are organizing a 6 week-long, mentored summer research program focused on "Big Data" and related computational and statistical problems. The program, funded by NIH's Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative, includes a didactic component, with lectures, and also a research project component where participating students will be working with some of our top faculty on a problem related to data mining, machine learning electronic health records or genetics.
