The University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute announces that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with five entities in Turkey, establishing the Data Science for the Public Good (DSPG) Young Scholars program in Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey’s capital city.
Over the last five summers, students from across the country have come together at the Biocomplexity Institute’s Arlington, Va. location for the Data Science for the Public Good (DSPG) Young Scholars program – an 11-week immersive research program through which students gain world-class, hands-on professional experience combining data science and public service. This year, as the world continues to evolve due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program has followed suit, adopting an entirely virtual format for the first time.
Will our hospitals have the capacity to care for those who become infected? This question remains at the heart of COVID-19 planning and response discussions everywhere as public health officials and policy makers consider how lifting interventions such as stay-at-home orders will impact a potential resurgence of the disease.
