Biomedical Informatics, Library and Data Sciences (BILDS) Review Committee

Objectives and Scope of Activities

The IRG reviews grant and cooperative agreement applications for research and resource projects and for research training activities that develop novel methods and approaches in informatics, library and data sciences for use in health care, public health and basic biomedical research.

The IRG provides advice and recommendations on the scientific and technical merit of applications for grants-in-aid and cooperative agreements for research, resource and cooperative agreement mechanisms in support of research, training, resource development, and scholarly publications in all areas of biomedical informatics, library and data sciences, including organization, management, interoperation, analysis, visualization, curation, presentation and sharing of biomedical data, information, and knowledge for use by a wide range of audiences, including scientists, clinicians, patients, elected officials, the general public, and intelligent computers. Biomedical informatics library and data sciences are defined to include clinical informatics, translational bioinformatics, health information science, consumer informatics and other related biomedical computing topics. The term ‘biomedical’ encompasses social and behavioral science research applicable to human health. The background of committee members will represent this broad spectrum of scientific interests.

NLM’s study section reviews research, career and fellowship grant applications assigned to NLM each year, covering clinical, translational, public health and consumer informatics. As NLM evolves into the hub of biomedical data science at NIH, we want the name of NLM’s study section to reflect this important role. The applications that come to BLIRC increasingly focus on the development of methods and approaches for making data, information and knowledge FAIR, encompassing more projects involving visualization, retrieval, curation and management of heterogeneous data types, with focus on a wide range of users, from consumers to scientists and clinicians. NLM believes that a change in name to Biomedical Informatics, Library and Data Sciences Review Committee better reflects the broad scope of NLM's grant programs.
