CRA-NIH Computing Research Challenges in Biomedicine Workshop - June 15-16, 2006
Overview of the Workshop
Bethesda Marriott Hotel, 5151 Pooks Hill Rd., Bethesda, MD
Register: http://www.blsmeetings.net/H1009 (by invitation only)
This meeting focused on computational needs that are central to the mission of NIH. As noted in the 2004 NIH Roadmap vision, computing is essential to progress in biomedicine: The success of computational biology is shown by the fact that computation has become integral and critical to modern biomedical research. However, the report also noted the substantial and substantive challenges biomedical researchers face in embracing cutting-edge computing research, as well as those faced by computing researchers in understanding current and future biomedical computing needs: Because computation is integral to biomedical research, its deficiencies have become significant limiters on the rate of progress of biomedical research.
This workshop addressed these and other associated challenges for realizing the synergies between these two fields that can drive both forward through cooperative effort.
The workshop participants consisted of a small number of invited leaders in computing and selected NIH Program Directors. The objective of the Workshop was not to create a report, but to develop a list of focused action items that will have impact within the NIH and computing communities.
