+DS Launches New Series: The Proposal Studios

The proposal studio virtual learning experience (vLE) concept is newly launching in spring 2021, with the goal of assisting Duke investigators with proposal development in health data science, and in sharing experiences with the broader Duke community. The series is co-hosted by Duke AI Health and the Duke+Data Science (+DS) program.

In each one-hour vLE, small teams of Duke investigators will discuss their proposal concepts with data science experts. Attendees will learn more about relevant analysis methods. But more broadly, attendees will also be introduced to approaches for early-stage concept ideation and refinement processes for health data science projects, as well as how to approach proposal development and submission for external funding agencies.

Anyone in the Duke community is welcome to attend, and we especially encourage Duke early-stage investigators, postdocs, and trainees to join us.  Learn more at https://plus.datascience.duke.edu/learn-ds.
