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.

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?
