IDIES announces 2024 Seed Funding recipients for Data-Intensive Research

The IDIES Seed Funding Initiative offers competitive awards of $25,000 to Johns Hopkins researchers for eligible research. The Seed Funding Initiative provided funding to the following data-intensive projects because they (a) involve areas relevant to IDIES and JHU institutional research priorities, (b) are multidisciplinary, and (c) build ideas and teams with good prospects for successful proposals to attract external research support by leveraging IDIES intellectual and physical infrastructure:

  • Tamas Budavari, Rohan Mathur; WSE, SOM
    Hybrid Statistical AI for Identifying Neurosurgery Patients in Need of Critical Care

  • Michael F. Bonner, KSAS
    Exploring uncharted dimensions of human brain representation

  • Paulette Clancy, WSE
    Playing with Chemical Lego Blocks: Rational Design of Semiconducting Polymers for Thermoelectric Materials

  • Kemar Green, SOM
    Generating Digital Ocular Motor Biomarkers for Deep Learning-Based Neurologic Phenotyping

  • Adam Sheingate, KSAS
    The Global Elections Dashboard: Harnessing Data Science to Enhance Electoral Oversight

Please join us in extending congratulations to the 2024 IDIES seed funding cohort. We'd also like to thank all other researchers who submitted proposals for consideration.
