By staff writers

April 20, 2021 -- The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Howard University are requesting proposals for an upcoming virtual code-a-thon aimed at addressing health disparities.

Specifically, the virtual code-a-thon on June 21-24 will focus on building tools, pipelines, and other analysis and visualization techniques on topics related to health disparities, such as metabolic syndrome, maternal morbidity, and COVID-19 disparities, according to the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy and the Howard University Research Centers for Minority Institutions Program.

The organizations said they are now accepting proposals for pipelines and analysis of large-scale public health datasets, data interoperability, and the use of machine-learning techniques. Proposals on tutorial pipelines and educational tools will also be accepted for the code-a-thon.

Proposals can be submitted until April 26.
