Winship welcomes Big Data Academy students

Citizen Science HD's Big Data Academy kicked off the first session of its web-based summer program on June 22. More than a dozen middle school students from across Georgia are taking part in this free, two-week virtual academy that focuses on using real data to understand the causes of cancer. Led by Drs. Adam Marcus, Theresa Gillespie, and Carlos Moreno, and program manager Jackie Valett, MS, Citizen Science HD is supported by an NIH SEPA grant and funding from Winship and the Georgia Clinical & Translational Science Alliance. The purpose of the program, which offers a June and a July session, is to promote a more diverse science/STEM workforce by focusing on under-represented groups, including females, minorities, and those in rural areas.
