Our lab is part of a large research institute at the University of Michigan. Over the past two months, we have been writing the number "3" in the logo name (d3lab) in superscript but, depending upon your idea, this can be either way. We don't want to stifle creativity!
The long name of our lab is "Data Science for Dynamic Intervention Decision-making Lab" (d3lab)
The abbreviation d3lab = data science x dynamic interventions x decision-making
Lab's mission statement:
"To improve health and education outcomes by developing, demystifying and disseminating data science tools for making better sequential (dynamic) intervention decisions."
Values to communicate with our design:
• Energetic and engaging lab
• Collaborative, multidisciplinary (people from different backgrounds working together, synergy or 1+1=3)
• Tech-savvy environment (data-driven science, mathematical science, statistical science, computer science)
• Hip (not stuffy)
