Vivli to participate in NIH HEAL program webinar

Vivli’s Rebecca Li, Executive Director, and Julie Wood, Senior Director, will be featured as panelists for Open House for HEAL Data: Discussions with HEAL-Recommended Repositories on Thursday, May 19th from 1:00-2:00pm ET.

The NIH HEAL Initiative® aims to create a novel web platform connecting data from existing repositories to allow researchers to share, find, and analyze data, with the goal of collaboratively accelerating scientific discovery and developing solutions to address the national opioid and pain management public health crises. The over 600 awards involved in the initiative are producing data at rapid rates, and identifying the right repository to house HEAL data is essential for researchers to share, discover, and develop solutions to urgently put an end to these interconnected crises and save lives.

In this webinar, Vivli, alongside National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and Figshare, will share their insights during a panel discussion and Q&A led by Alex Waldrop of the HEAL Data Stewardship Group.

Waldrop will also share resources newly developed since last year’s Finding a Home for Your HEAL Data webinar, including an updated repository selection quiz, a curated list of recommended repositories, and an explanation of how choosing a repository intersects with preparing study-level metadata for the HEAL Platform.


We look forward to seeing you there!
