Data Science and Health (DASH)

The Data Science and Health (DASH) Cluster is building a system to link health research data in BC. Our work will enhance the availability and use of health data to improve diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, as well as enable computational tools that speed discovery of new knowledge, optimizing health outcomes for all BC residents.
