The Woodrow Wilson School, a graduate program of Princeton University, is a major center of education and research in public and international affairs.  

On April 4, 2014, The Nicholson Foundation and the Woodrow Wilson School co-sponsored a conference to explore the innovative ways that Big Data techniques are currently being used in health and other sectors. The conference brought together the varying perspectives of leading medical practitioners, academic researchers, policy experts, and government officials to examine how these techniques can be applied to improving the health of New Jersey’s residents and communities. Speakers also addressed broad issues raised by the use of Big Data techniques in health, such as privacy and cost.
