Meeting Objectives

These webinars will include overviews of the programs and their unique aspects, followed by question-and-answer sessions. The webinars will conclude with an open question-and-answer session.

The dkNET Coordinating Unit (dkNET-CU) will direct the continued development and expansion of the NIDDK Information Network (dkNET). dkNET supports the NIDDK community’s needs in data science by providing an information portal that connects users to data, analytical tools, and other biomedical research resources. Additionally, dkNET supports researchers by providing a hub for data-driven hypothesis generation; a suite of tools that assist users in FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) practice and in improving rigor and reproducibility in research; and a variety of programs to enhance community engagement and workforce development. The dkNET-CU will be responsible for providing the scientific direction, vision, and administrative management to advance dkNET goals.

The Human Islet Research Network (HIRN) Pancreas Knowledgebase Program (PanKbase) will be responsible for developing a centralized resource of the human pancreas for diabetes research that will provide access to deeply curated high-quality datasets, knowledge in computable forms, and advanced data science tools and workflows, and will enable open and reproducible multidisciplinary collaboration toward accelerating biomarker and therapeutic target development. The program will become a component of the Human Islet Research Network (HIRN).

Questions can be pre-submitted at GrantsInfo@nih.gov by 11:59 p.m. local time the day before each webinar.
