Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Workshop
- 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.
