  • Epigenetic & High-Dimension Mediation Data Challenge
    from June 7, 2017 to June 9, 2017
    Progresses in high-throughput sequencing make it possible to study how epigenetic changes mediate the effect of environmental risk factors on diseases. Epigenetic changes are said to be mediators when they intervene in the causal pathway between environmental exposures and diseases. As an example, the figure above represents a mediation model where epigenetic changes partly mediate the effect of air pollution on birth weight.

  • Open seminars about reproducible research
    from March 23, 2017 to March 30, 2017
    Arnaud Legrand (LIG) will start the open seminar series by giving a talk about reproducible research. Although reproducibility is one of the main principles of the scientific method, it has been shown that a substantial proportion of published research is not reproducible leading to the scientific 'crisis' of reproducibility.

An interdisciplinary research Institute on how data change science and society

The Grenoble Alpes Data Institute aims to undertake groundbreaking interdisciplinary research focusing on how data change science and society.

It combines three fields of data-related research in a unique way: data science applied to spatial and environmental sciences, biology, and health sciences; data-driven research as a major tool in Social Sciences and Humanities; and studies about data governance, security and the protection of data and privacy.

Data-driven innovation is a key pillar of 21st-century growth and will significantly enhance scientific progress, economic competitiveness and social well-being.

The Grenoble Alpes Data Institute is created in a timely manner in order to undertake promising data-related research on strategic fields including climate change, space, health, the protection of freedom and security of European citizens, and the promotion of innovative societies.
