Select NLM Associate Fellowship Projects

NLM Associate Fellows select three projects to work on during the fellowship year. One project, in the Fall, is a smaller project, and complements the curriculum phase of the fellowship. The other two projects are bigger, and take place in the Spring from approximately February through July each year. The projects can range from operational to research; from something applied, like developing a video, to exploratory, like exploring use of common data elements in NIH-funded research. NLM Associate Fellows write reports for each project; a selection of the most recent project reports are presented below.
