BMI Faculty Involved in 6 of 10 Funded Data Science Initiative Projects

The UW-Madison Data Science Initiative has awarded 10 fully funded projects, with 6 of those projects naming BMI faculty as either the PI, co-PI, or co-investigator, and 1 BMI affiliate faculty named as co-PI on two additional projects. This is a testament to how important the work we do in BMI is to research projects throughout the university!
