The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety, and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.

Research Project: The selected fellow will support efforts to develop and implement bioinformatics and informatics training to address the needs of DFWED’s workforce. The fellow will collaborate with bioinformaticians and data scientists to evaluate and adapt existing tutorials, assess training platforms to host training materials, and develop new tutorials and associated documentation to publish on a bioinformatics training platform.
