Seventh Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Workshop

With a special subsection on: Ontology and the Opioid Crisis


The Clinical and Translational Science Ontology Group (CTSOG) invites you to join us on February 20-21, 2019 in Gainesville, Florida

We are happy to announce as keynote speaker:

  • Janna Hastings (Babraham Institute, Cambridge, UK)


William Hogan (University of Florida, Gainesville, FL), hoganwr@ufl.edu

Barry Smith (University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY), phismith@buffalo.edu


From genomes to public health, newer and larger datasets are increasingly available to inform precision approaches to the treatment and prevention of disease and disorder​s. Managing these datasets--especially their integration--for everything from managing the opioid epidemic to the learning health system to translational science--requires more and better ontologies. This workshop will briefly survey the state-of-the-art in ontology at the nexus of these trends, identify needs and opportunities for future work and collaborations, and develop one or more white papers charting the course for the future, including a set of recommendations for key stakeholders.

If you are interested in presenting cutting edge work in this area, please email a brief presentation proposal to Barry Smith (phismith@buffalo.edu) and Bill Hogan (hoganwr@ufl.edu). We are primarily interested in ontology, but also are interested to hear from experts in the CTSA network working in a diverse range of areas, from precision medicine, to the opioid epidemic, to precision public health.
