The National Center for Biomedical Ontology will hold a Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Tutorial and Workshop in its series of training and dissemination events.

Venue: Hilton Garden Inn Baltimore Airport


Tutorial: April 24, 2012
Workshop: April 25-26, 2012

Organization: Barry Smith (NCBO), Jessica Tenenbaum (Duke), Rob Wynden (UCSF)

The Tutorial will provide a beginners' introduction to ontology methods and technology for students and researchers. Topics highlighted in the tutorial will be of particular interest to individuals at institutions conducting clinical and translational research, including institutions which 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 in the field of clinical and translational science to present on-going work and to review what has been achieved thus far. It will conclude with consideration of plans and strategies for enhanced coordination of ontology development initiatives in the field of clinical and translational science in the future.

Tutorial (Tuesday, April 24, 10.30am-6pm)

Introduction to Biomedical Ontology for Non-Experts

See schedule here

Workshop (Day 1: Wednesday, April 25, 9am-5pm)

Major Ontology Initiatives relevant to Clinical and Translational Research
Chris Chute (Mayo): Data Governance and Normalization within the Mayo Clinic Enterprise
Melissa Haendel (Oregon) and Jon Corson-Rikert (Cornell): eagle-i and VIVO Ontology Initiatives
Jessica Tenenbaum (Duke): Remarks on Genetics Ontologies 
William Hogan (Arkansas) and Werner Ceusters (Buffalo): Referent Tracking and Demographic Data Ontology
Shawn Murphy (Partners): i2b2-Specific Ontologies
Richard Scheuermann and Lindsay Cowell (Dallas): NLP-Based Mapping of Textbook Pathology to Ontology for General Medical Science (OGMS)
Nigam Shah (Stanford): Making Sense of Unstructured Data in Medicine using Ontologies
Possibly also: OCRe (for clinical research), Permissions Ontology (for consent; owned by Jihad Obeid at Medical University of South Carolina); biobanking ontology (Arkansas)

Workshop (Day 2: Thursday, April 26, 9am-4pm)

EHR, Ontology and Interoperability
Presentations by EHR vendors
Rob Wynden (UCSF): The Health Ontology Mapper (HOM).
Next Steps
How can we measure the value brought by ontology-based approaches?
How can we ensure high-quality and high-value approaches?
How can we promote a consistent approach across the CTSA consortium?
