Greetings all!

I'm Mark Wilkinson, Assistant Prof. of Medical Genetics at the
University of British Columbia, and PI in Bioinformatics at the iCAPTURE
Centre for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Research, St. Paul's Hospital,
Vancouver.  My "claim to fame", so to speak, is the Web Services branch
of the BioMOBY project (http://biomoby.org), which I established in 2001
and continue to spend most of my time working on, though the broader
BioMOBY consortium is well over 50 continuously active members now.  I
recently started a Semantic Web initiative - CardioSHARE (Cardiovascular
Semantic Health And Research Environment -
http://cardioshare.icapture.ubc.ca) with the goal of bulding OWL/RDF
models of the Ischemic Heart Disease data being captured in our local
molecular, clinical and tissue registries, and outcomes data from two
other databases in other parts of Canada, with the goal of using
Semantic Web Services to discover, extract, integrate and facilitate
classification of these data; in addition to building prototype
semantically-enabled ethics and privacy protection systems to both
enhance the granularity of patient consent, as well as automate the
protection of and access to individual patient data in an "ethics aware"

I'll likely be just a "lurker" on this list most of the time, but if
there is a way that I can contribute please just ping me!

Best wishes all!

"For most of this century we have viewed communications as a conduit, 
       a pipe between physical locations on the planet. 
What's happened now is that the conduit has become so big and interesting 
      that communication has become more than a conduit, 
       it has become a destination in its own right..."
