2020 SPARC Ideas Lab

Do you want to help transform the future of bioelectronic medicine?

If so, we invite you to apply to the 2020 SPARC Ideas Lab!



WHO: We are seeking diverse individuals that bring new ideas and innovative thinking.


WHAT: This interactive experience will bring together diverse interdisciplinary teams to tackle the challenge of building interoperable, extensible, and personalizable simulations to inform bioelectronic medicine approaches for diseases and conditions that impact the stomach, colon, lungs, heart, or lower urinary tract. The concepts you generate at the Ideas Lab can benefit from the extensive experimental data collected within the NIH SPARC program and will integrate into SPARC’s systematic cloud-based framework for computational neuro- and life-sciences.


WHEN: April 20-24, 2020


WHERE: Washington DC metro area


HOW: Visit http://bit.ly/35gacuL to learn more and apply! When you apply, be prepared to answer a few questions about yourself, your work experience, your research focus, and why you are interested in and qualified for the Ideas Lab.


Following the Ideas Lab, teams may be encouraged to develop proposals for submission to the NIH Common Fund’s Stimulating Peripheral Activities to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) program for potential funding. Visit SPARC FOA Priorities for updates.
