Title: Using Ontologies for Visualizing Design Heterogeneity in Human

Abstract: The human studyome is the totality of all human studies worldwide,
encompassing all interventional, observational and qualitative research on
human subjects. The human studyome is one of the most valuable sources of
knowledge for advancing the understanding of diseases and treatments. Dr.
Sim will discuss her NCBO Driving Biological Project that sought to use
ontologies to visualize design heterogeneity in randomized trials for
comparative effectiveness researchers. She will also discuss some
observations on the benefits and challenges of applying ontologies and
ontology tools to computerizing the human studyome and to clinical research
in general.
Bio: Dr. Ida Sim is Associate Professor of Medicine at UCSF and Director,
UCSF Center for Clinical and Translational Informatics
( <> ). She received her MD and
her PhD in Medical Informatics from Stanford University. Dr. Sim's research
focus is on knowledge-based technologies for evidence-based practice,
especially in the ontological representation of human studies for advancing
clinical and translational research. In policy work, Dr. Sim was the
founding Project Coordinator of the World Health Organization's
International Clinical Trials Registry Platform, which sets global standards
on clinical trial registration and reporting. She is a recipient of United
States Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers
(PECASE), and is a Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics.
