Interdisciplinary Health Research Projects

Health and biology is govern by genetic data and how it manifests and interacts with the environment. Uncovering novel insight in these processes requires tools to manipulate, analyze, and visualize massive and disparate data sets such as DNA and RNA sequences, images, and text.

The DSI partners with the Faculty of Medicine at UBC and the Pacific Health Innovation eXchange (PHIX) to provide funding to interdisciplinary research groups to accelerate health care breakthroughs in British Columbia. These teams feature leading clinicians collaborating with faculty at the cutting-edge of data science research domains such as statistical modelling, machine learning, and natural language processing.
