Faculty Adviser: 
Neil Sarkar PhD, MLIS; Elizabeth S. Chen, PhD

This course will introduce students to basic data analytic skills needed for supporting research in biomedicine and health care. This course is not focused on teaching the full breadth of fundamental informatics or data science concepts; however, some coverage of these topics will be done within the context of biomedical and health scenarios. The overall course will be done in the context of student chosen projects, with the goal of establishing necessary foundational data analytic techniques for supporting longer-term research goals.
