The Ideker Laboratory is recruiting a Program Manager for Bridge2AI, a new NIH initiative to broadly enable artificially intelligent systems in biomedicine.
The Bridge2AI Consortium seeks to bridge the biomedical and behavioral research communities with the rapidly growing community of experts developing AI/ML models by producing flagship datasets that adhere to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reproducible) and critically integrate ethical considerations in preparing data for computation. The overall goal of Bridge2AI is to generate flagship datasets and best practices for the collection and preparation of AI/ML-ready data to address biomedical and behavioral research grand challenges. Bridge2AI integrates data science with data management and analytic experts to unlock the potential of AI/ML for the scientific community.

About the Ideker Lab
The Ideker Laboratory is in the Division of Human Genetics and Precision Medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine. We are a vibrant research team of 30-40 staff, postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students known for its friendly, inclusive, and collaborative environment. We perform bioinformatics research coupled with wet-lab investigations, working in the areas of network biology, data-driven hierarchical modeling, and machine learning applied to biomedicine. We also support multiple open-source software projects, some with 100K+ users. The research goal of the Ideker Lab is to develop a new type of medicine based on knowledge of the complete physical and functional maps of the cell. We are developing new ways to create these maps directly from genome scale measurements (genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic) and to use these maps to translate the increasingly complex data gathered from patients to predict disease outcomes and develop better treatments.
