*Abstract*: (by Christopher Chute)

LexGrid, the Lexical Grid, is a common data model for
vocabularies and ontologies with a suite of associated
services. These services, divided into runtime and
browsing classes, include standard methods for
accessing content, attributes, child concepts by
subsumption, and semantic relationships. LexGrid has
been adopted as part of NCI's caBIG under the moniker
of LexBIG to function as the core middleware for
terminology access within caBIG, by CDC as LexPHIN to
replace terminology services within the Public Health
Information Network, and as the core content manager
within the National Center for Biomedical Ontology as
part of the corresponding NIH Roadmap center of
excellence at Stanford.

*About the Speaker*:

*Dr. Christopher Chute* received his undergraduate and
medical training at Brown University, internal medicine
residency at Dartmouth, and doctoral training in
Epidemiology at Harvard. He is Board Certified in

of Physicians, the American College of Epidemiology,

career scientist at Mayo, Dr. Chute's NIH and

He is a Board member of the ANSI Health Information
