Data Science Health Innovation Fellow (6028U) Job #27188

In 2019, UC Berkeley, UCSF, Johnson & Johnson Innovation and Janssen Research & Development came together to establish the Data Science Health Innovation Fellowship Program, to bring together experienced data scientists with academic and industry researchers, to facilitate collaboration among scientists, engineers, clinicians, and entrepreneurs, to tackle complex problems in health and patient care and to accelerate innovation in healthcare through data-driven approaches.

This fellowship program offers a two-year research and entrepreneurial opportunity for seasoned data science professionals to apply computer science, data science, data engineering, and computational statistics research and development principles, along with relevant domain science knowledge, to complex problems and datasets, to advance understanding of health and improve patient care by providing meaningful clinical insights. The fellowship program will recruit serial cohorts of up to five outstanding data scientists per year from industry and academia. We are seeking applications from a wide range of backgrounds and with specializations across the burgeoning field of data science, such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, developing and optimizing methodologies, software, and tools while working with various large datasets. The datasets Fellows have worked with may be healthcare related, such as electronic medical records, clinical notes, medical images, high-content microscopy and ‘omics, or should have comparable levels of scale and complexity. Fellows will receive training, support, and guidance from domain science and medical experts, including a mentor from each of the three collaborating organizations. The primary responsibility of the Fellows is to successfully identify and conduct interdisciplinary data-intensive research related to healthcare and use computational and data science technology as a tool to accomplish the aims of the research.

Greetings from Robin Greenler

BioQUEST’s 30th celebration tonight has me thinking of you all.  I would so love to be there tonight —I frequently think of you, Ethel.  I am also thinking of our dear friend Patti Soderbergh and wish she was around to be part of the celebrations.

At any rate, I hope you have a good celebration tonight—you have a lot to be proud of in that consortium.

BioQUEST and Me

I went to my first BioQUEST workshop in 1991.  As for many people, it was a transforming experience.  The three p's became, and remain, important elements in my teaching.  I also made a number of very good friends that year, Ethel Stanley among them.  I wish I could be there to celebrate this anniversary.  It is a wonderful tribute to its nurturers that it is still such a vibrant organization.

BioQUEST and the 3P's: People, people, people

Back in the early days, in 1989-1991, I had the pleasure of working in BioQUEST with the brilliant, wonderful and irrepressible Patti Soderberg.  BioQUEST was a small operation, Patti and I wore more hats than I can count, from coffee maker to workshop facilitator.  On the fateful day that we needed to come up with an official titles to satisfy some long forgotten piece of official business, we decided that we each wanted our title to be BioQUEST Co-Empress.  And so we decreed. 

Those were exciting days, BioQUEST was small, computers were huge, and simulations were rudimentary.  Nils Pearson developed a hypercard stack—a series of digital pages (black and white, of course) that would link from one to another in the order that the user desired!  So rather than in a linear fashion, the user could explore according to their own interests!  The content was actually pretty sophisticated conceptually, but, well, let’s say the hypercard stack has been surpassed technologically!

But central for me was the incredible mentorship provided me by John Jungck in those years.  When I first came to Beloit in 1989 I was barely older than the Beloit College students I was teaching.  And John Jungck was an incredible mentor as I sorted out my career paths, professional passions, gifts, talents, and growing edges.  I have no question that the following 25 years that I have spent in science education reform pushing for engaged, active, user-directed, constructivist, discovery-oriented science education, (and feel free to add any more adjectives form the last decades of science education reform), I have no doubt that my efforts were fundamentally molded by BioQUEST broadly and John specifically.  To John, my deep gratitude.

I came back and rejoined the fold in 2000-2005 and then I was greeted by another great mind and force of spirit in Ethel Stanley.  Wow, Ethel taught me a lot about ways to think, move through and be in the world.  Another formative relationship. Ethel, you never cease to amaze!

There were many more wonderful and inspiring people who have made up BioQUEST, too many to name.  It was always a challenge to describe to people what BioQUEST was, but really it is not complicated.  BioQUEST has always been, first and foremost, a community of inspired, passionate, bright people, with creative visions, who are committed to making a difference in science and education.  And while substantial “products” have certainly been developed, always the people are where it has started.  So, to all the BioQUEST people, long-timers and new, thank-you for carrying on the vision.

My First BioQUEST Workshop (Stacey Kiser)

I showed up to my first BioQUEST workshop in 1999. I thought I was there to borrow all the good curriculum ideas I could. I never dreamed I would meet Maura Flannery and share a teaching philosophy. Maura wrote about her experience and this made me a BQ Lifer.

Cafe BQ - fueling the hard work

We work hard and snacks fuel our thinking. Oreos are a staple. You will also find Diet Coke, because this fuels BQ founder John Jungck.

What do you request for this year's cafe?

And BioQUEST leaves my basement.

Following good tax keeping protocol, financial records older than 7 years were shredded, as were about 10 boxes of unreadable disc storage devices, including large floppys.  Dare we admit remembering using those?

BioQUEST in my basement...

I went through ALL these boxes.  I commend the record keepers of BioQUEST who faithfully kept every draft, printed out every email, and made multiple copies of anything official.  It was a good day when we began to trust our online email archives.  I could map every trip any BioQUEST staff made over the years based on the meticulous reimbursement receipts.  Among my favorite finds: the "Road Map/Anti-panic File," a copy of American Biology Teacher from ...? and priceless, a supportive letter from none other than our own Paul Ryan.  How things change.  Any guesses where that article on Buckminster Fuller was printed?  It wasn't Science. Who says archive diving is boring?
