We had a very comprehensive talk by our invited speaker 
Professor Christopher Chute from the Mayo Clinic 
College of Medicine who presented the monumental work 
of: "The Lexical Grid Project: LexGrid"    (01)

Our appreciations go to Professor Chute for sharing his
work, his knowledge and insight with us today. As 
mentioned at the session, special thanks is also due to 
two Professor Mark Musen (Stanford Medical Informatics) 
for introducing Professor Chute to our community and 
for recruiting him into the Ontolog NHIN-RFI-Response 
team back in late 2004. And, as always, we want to 
thank all of you to all the participants for joining us
and for contributing to the rich discussion we had
during yesterday's session.    (02)

Proceedings of the session are captured at our wiki
page, at:

In particular, full audio recording of the session is
now available - see:

... Professor Chute's LexGrid session definitely adds 
another key piece to the body of knowledge that our 
community is building together. Thanks again!    (05)

Best regards.  =ppy

 > Center for Biomedical Ontology as part of the
 > corresponding NIH Roadmap center of excellence at
