On May 11, FASEB and the Office of Data Science Strategy at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced the launch of DataWorks! Prize, an opportunity to highlight the role of data sharing and reuse in biological and biomedical research, with a total prize purse of $500,000.

DataWorks! Prize will reward research teams whose innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to data sharing and reuse have catalyzed new scientific discoveries in biology and biomedicine. Submissions will undergo a two-stage review process, with final awards selected by a panel of NIH officials. Twelve winning teams will be recognized with a cash prize and will present their stories as part of a DataWorks! Prize symposium. Two additional winning teams will receive a nonmonetary recognition.  

The Dataworks! Prize competition is open to anyone aged 18 or older. Individual participants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. International researchers can participate on a team with a U.S. team lead. To learn more about the Prize and submit an entry, visit https://www.herox.com/dataworks/teams
