Innovate For Health

The Innovate For Health initiative was launched in June 2019 as a collaboration between BIDS at UC Berkeley, the Bakar Computational Health Sciences Institute (BCHSI) at UCSF, and Janssen Research & Development, LLC (part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson), who together launched the Data Science Health Innovation Fellowship Program to recruit data scientists for high-impact, data-driven healthcare research.  The fellowship provides successful applicants with 2 years of financial support to develop and execute health-related translational research that optimizes data-driven discovery using vast healthcare datasets and addresses currently unmet patient needs.  For more information about the program and how to apply, visit the Data Science Health Innovation Fellowship website. I4H sponsors logos banner
