The [http://www.bioontology.org/ National Center for Biomedical Ontology] will hold a Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Tutorial and Workshop in its [http://www.bioontology.org/wiki/index.php/Meetings_and_Events series] of training and dissemination events.
The '''Tutorial''' will provide a beginners' introduction to ontology technology relevant to clinical and translational scientists. Topics highlighted in the tutorial will be of particular interest to individuals at institutions conducting clinical and translational research, including institutions who have or are interested in obtaining CTSA (Clinical and Translational Science Award) grants.
The '''Workshop''' will provide an opportunity for those involved in ontology-related projects within and beyond the CTSA Consortium to review what has been achieved thus far and consider plans and strategies for enhanced coordination in the future. It will feature presentations of on-going work on ontology-supported research at CTSA Consortium institutions.
