Data scientists are pros at taking enormous masses of messy data and using their statistical, programming and mathematical skills to create cohesive stories. Data science is a new and fast growing career path, as companies are creating more data every day, but most are struggling with how to manage and benefit from it.   This panel of big data specialtists will help you learn more about big data and how you can become involved in the data science field.

This event is sponsored by the NIH FelCom Career Development Subcommittee. A written summary of the session will be posted for fellows who are unable to attend.
