The need for computational partnerships in biomedical research has increased sharply in recent years as the Human Genome project and other high-throughput biomedical research has underscored important new requirements for data processing, information retrieval, database design, data mining, and quantitative biology. At the National Library of Medicine as well as a number of other Institutes at the National Institutes of Health campus, research funding opportunities increasingly require significant computational expertise, and specifically require applicants to include in the project collaborations between biologists and computational experts. This talk will provide a survey of current computationally-intensive opportunities at NIH, suggestions for computer scientists and engineers looking for biomedical partners, and some guidance about the NIH grant processes.
