Virtual Indigenous Data Science (VIDS) Academy
The Virtual Indigenous Data Science Academy  is a program hosted by the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences in partnership with area Tribal colleges to begin to address the growing demand for data science education.  A week-long training academy (July 12 & July 15-19) will introduce students to the foundations of data science and analytics. The Virtual Indigenous Data Science Program introduces students to data, computational approaches, access to resources, and career opportunities in data science, and address the under-representation of American Indians and Alaskan Natives in the biomedical research workforce.

The Initiative builds on the NIH-funded ND INBRE Health & the Environment program, which is housed at the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

The deadline to register for the 2024 Virtual Indigenous Data Science Academy is April 15, 2024.  Register here.

On March 24, 2023, INBRE-supported undergraduate researchers joined representatives from other North Dakota institutions to present their research at the State Capitol in Bismarck.  Participants were from Minot State University, Mayville State University, Dickinson State University, Valley City State University, North Dakota State University and Bismarck State College.  The Undergraduate Research Showcase was organized by the “Statewide Research Working Group” made up of a research representative from each institution in the NDUS system. This presented an opportunity for legislators to hear first-hand from students about their enthusiasm for research and its impact on undergraduate students.
