Event: Advancing the Use and Development of Common Data Elements (CDE) in Research Workshop

We are excited to announce the upcoming ODSS Common Data Elements (CDE) Workshop, hosted by the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS). 

This two-day workshop will take place on March 6-7, 2024, at the Natcher Conference Center in Bethesda, MD. This workshop aims to bring together expert panels, researchers, professional societies, and patient organizations to explore the value, resources, and applications of CDEs. 

Our speakers will cover a range of pertinent topics, including: 

  • The value of CDEs
  • Current NIH resources for CDEs
  • Technical implementation aspects and approaches to enhancing interoperability
  • Overcoming barriers in CDE adoption in community research
  • Use cases for preparing and applying CDEs to intelligent technologies

Please mark your calendars and prepare to join us for this informative and engaging workshop.

Recently, the 2023 Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award was awarded to James Fujimoto, David Huang, and Eric Swanson for their invention of optical coherence tomography (OCT), a technique that has revolutionized ocular health care.

In recognition of this honor and to celebrate the impact of OCT in vision health and research, the National Eye Institute is hosting a scientific symposium, March 18-19, 2024, at the NIH campus in Bethesda.

The program will feature lectures and discussion on a diverse range of topics highlighting current and emerging OCT applications in both research and clinical settings.
