Dataworks! Prizes Awarded to PhysioNet Challenge and MIT Critical Data teams
Feb. 22, 2023
We are delighted to announce that the George B. Moody PhysioNet Challenges were awarded the "Distinguished Achievement Award for Data Reuse, as part of the DataWorks! Prize, while MIT Critical Data was awarded "Significant Achievement Award for Data Sharing".
Launched on May 11, 2022, the Data Works! Prize was created in partnership between the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) to highlight the critical role of data sharing and reuse in scientific discovery.
George B. Moody designed and led the Challenges from 2000 to 2015. Prof. Clifford has led the Challenges since 2015 and has been a key contributor to its parent resource, PhysioNet (The Research Resource for Complex Physiologic Signals), for over two decades. Prof. Reyna has co-led the PhysioNet Challenges since 2019, and has been instrumental in the development of its repeatable science standards.
MIT Critical Data, led by the Laboratory for Computational Physiology, builds communities around the world across disciplines to derive knowledge from data routinely collected in the process of care in order to understand health and disease better, and in the local context. Its flagship project is the Medical Information Mart for Intensive Care, or the MIMIC database.
