Signs, Symptoms and Findings: Towards an Ontology for Clinical Phenotypes

4-5 Settembre 2009

Dipartimento di Informatica, Sistemistica e Comunicazione - Edificio U14, Viale Sarca 336, Milano

Signs, Symptoms and Findings: Towards an Ontology for Clinical Phenotypes

Facendo seguito al primo workshop Signs, Symptoms and Findings: Towards an Ontology for Clinical Phenotypes tenutosi a Dallas nel settembre 2008, il Bionformatics Group del Dipartimento di Informatica, Sistemistica e Comunicazione dell'Università di Milano-Bicocca organizza una nuova adunata di ricercatori a Milano, per discutere ulteriormente riguardo la costruzione di una ontologia per fenotipi clinici.

La partecipazione al workshop è libera.

 

Aims of the workshop

The aims of the workshop are similar to those of the Dallas Workshop and are reported hereafter. The aims of clinical and translational research are to achieve a better understanding of the pathogenesis of human disease in order to develop effective diagnostic, therapeutic and prevention strategies. .

Biomedical informatics can play an important role in supporting this research by facilitating the management, integration, analysis and exchange of data derived from and related to the research problems being studied. A key aspect of this support is to bring clarity, rigor and formalism to the representation of

  • signs, symptoms, clinical and laboratory findings, clinical condition or phenotype, disease diagnosis, treatment, treatment response, outcome and follow-up;
  • disease causation, initiation, progression, pathogenesis;
  • the interface between the clinical and the biomolecular world.

Therefore allowing the data to be more readily retrievable and shareable, and more amenable to statistical analysis or algorithmic reasoning.

The goals of the workshop are the following

  • To utilize consistent ontological design and development principles to describe disease signs and symptoms, clinical and laboratory findings, and their interrelations.
  • To delineate the roles that signs, symptoms and findings play in both clinical patient management and in clinical research.
  • To develop a clear understanding and representation of the distinction between clinical and pre-clinical manifestations of diseases.
  • To incorporate in such understanding a clear notion of temporal evolution of a phenotype, that took into account the evidence gathered from various sources.
  • To take further steps towards harmonizing the ontological representation of disease signs and symptoms and clinical and laboratory findings with existing and emerging standards in knowledge representation from the health informatics and bioinformatics communities.
  • To explore integration with the most important ontological and database resources available the omics arena (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epigenomics, pharmacogenomics, phenomics, etc...).

 

Further informations can be found on the official site of the workshop.
