Hi Melanie,
  Right now we're looking at three subgroups of relevance for translational medicine:

1 - sPCHR (semantic Personally Controlled Health Care Records) -> to capture patient data using Semantic Web technologies, thereby making use of existing Linked Open Data (drug, clinical, etc) and becoming a valuable source of structured information for epidemiological research, clinical research and drug discovery. We're keen on forming closer bonds with primary stakeholders (developers of EHR standards and software; hospitals and clinics) and the COI group to get this done.

2 - PGx+ -> to extend sPCHR with genetic information such that pharmacogenetic/pharmacogenomic experiments may be recorded and used in drug discovery and personalized/preventative medicine.

3 - Animal Models -> to add animal model information as Linked Data so as to accelerate drug discovery by facilitating the investigation of human disease through common elements (gene, gene variants & gene expression, pathways & metabolites) in animal and cellular models of disease.


  These seem like interesting directions to head out in - but we're open to different ideas, and certainly to new participants :)  What do you think?

m.
