Want to access DART modules?

DART was research study in 2023 in which biomedical researchers from around the world were given curricula that match their needs and learn data science techniques. DART is no longer recruiting participants, but you can learn more about the program on our website or by filling out our interest form.

Importantly, all of our materials are available publicly for your learning needs, even if you were not enrolled in the full sixteen week study. So if you have one hour, one day, or one month to dedicate to learning, we think there will be something for you in our educational modules.

If you’re not sure where to start with this large catalog of modules, you can check out some sample pathways or try to build your own using our prototype module discovery application
