History

Following discussion at the Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Workshop held in Buffalo, NY in April, 2012, a group of individuals applied to create the CTSOG as an affinity group in the Informatics Key Function Committee (IKFC) of the CTSA Consortium (see Announcing Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Affinity Group). This group sponsored a second face-to-face meeting, the CTSA Ontology Workshop, in Orlando in February, 2013. In January, 2014 however, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences restructured the governance of the Consortium. Although the IKFC no longer exists, the Ontology Group continued on without Consortium support, changing its name to leave out the word 'affinity'.
