Description

Presented by Vivian Ota Wang, Deputy Director of the Office of Data Sharing, National Cancer Institute

About the presenter:

Dr. Vivian Ota Wang serves as the deputy director of the Office of Data Sharing at the Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology (CBIIT) within the National Cancer Institute (NCI). In this role, Dr. Ota Wang applies her expertise in data sharing, racial identity, ethics, and community engagement to data access and sharing. Her focus is on increasing the efficiency and consistency of data access and sharing processes within national data repositories; ethical, legal, and social issues; and health disparities, advocacy, and outreach related to data sharing. Vivian was previously involved with the National Human Genome Research Institute, NCI, and trans-NIH data sharing policy development, implementation, management, and oversight activities.

Dr. Ota Wang's early career as a genetic counselor fueled her desire to pursue a doctorate in counseling psychology, enabling her to study how considerations of race and racial identity influence genomics, genetic counseling and public health. She has since held tenure-track faculty positions at Rutgers, Arizona State, and Vanderbilt Universities where her research program focused on racial identity issues related to research ethics and community engagement in psychology, genomics, and public health.
