The symposium included talks by Tracy Futhey, Geoffrey Ginsburg, and Paul Jaskot, as well as a poster competition, which had a total of 36 submissions for two different categories: Visualization Challenge and Research Computing. All six members of the Health Data Science 2017-2018 intern cohort (Arpita Mandan, Lanqiu (Kate) Yao, Muyao Sun, Ran Zhou, Xilin (Cecilia) Shi, Yimeng Jia) presented posters on the Forge projects they have been working on through the summer and fall of 2017. Through the poster presentations, the interns were given the opportunity to discuss their projects with other members of the Duke research community and showcase their contributions as part of the internship program.  

The Health Data Science internship program is a partnership of the Duke Clinical Research Institute and the Duke Forge. The program embeds Duke graduate students into Forge demonstration project teams to gain hands-on experience in quantitative methods and applications.
