Abstract: </span><span style='font-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif";
color:#0070C0'>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.<o:p></o:p></span></p>

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
