A website for the CREATE program in responsible data science in the field of health

The Big Data Research Center team recently launched the website of its CREATE program in responsible data science in the field of health, an innovative program involving computing, medicine, public health, law and ethics, which strives to train highly qualified personnel in this key sector.

From medical images and lab results, to hospitalization reports and medical records, the healthcare industry generates massive amounts of data. However, their potential is under-exploited, in particular due to a shortage of specialists trained in both computer science and biomedical sciences.

The CREATE program, funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and led by the Big Data Research Center (CRDM) at Université Laval, will provide young researchers with the ability to exploit this data in a responsible manner. These qualified researchers will develop cutting-edge technical and professional skills in communication, management, knowledge transfer and ethics and law.

Led by François Laviolette, the CREATE program brings together several co-researchers including Philippe Després, Anne-Sophie Charest, Louis Archambault (Université Laval), Nadia Lahrichi (École Polytechnique Montréal), Isabel Fortier (McGill University), John Kildea (McGill University), France Légaré (Université Laval), Catherine Régis (Université de Montreal) and Louis-Martin Rousseauncé (École Polytechnique Montreal).
