The National Library of Medicine seeks applications for novel data science/informatics approaches that can help individuals gather, manage and use data and information about their personal health.
To bring the benefits of big data research to consumers and patients, new biomedical informatics and data science approaches are needed, shaped to meet the needs of consumers and patients, whose health literacy, language skills, technical sophistication, education and cultural traditions affect how they find, understand and use personal health information.  Novel data science approaches are needed to help individuals at every step, from harvesting to storing to using data and information in a personal health library. Areas of development suggested below are not meant to limit the scope or creativity of proposed projects.
