The practice of life science is continuously becoming more data-dependent. The amount and complexity of data is growing exponentially, and more scientific discoveries are enabled when data is openly available to researchers across the world. This is the basis for the SciLifeLab and Wallenberg National Program on Data-Driven Life Science (DDLS), which now sets out on its mission to recruit and train the next generation of life scientists as well as to create strong and globally competitive computational and data science capabilities in Swedish life science. The program is funded by Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation with a total of 3.1 billion SEK (about 300Meuro, 350MUSD) over 12 years and SciLifeLab, as a national infrastructure for life science, coordinates this program in close collaboration with ten universities (Chalmers, GU, KI, KTH, LiU, LU, SLU, SU, UmU and UU) and the Swedish Museum of Natural History).
Nominate additional candidates to two of the four DDLS research area expert groups.
The nomination process for additional members to the Data-Driven Cell and Molecular biology and the Data-Driven Epidemiology and biology of infection research area expert groups is open.
The DDLS Fellows program is a career program aiming at accelerating the data-driven paradigm shift in life sciences. The DDLS Fellows will form the base of the next-generation of data-driven life scientists in Sweden, and create globally leading computational and data science capabilities.
