That's excellent.

As may have been mentioned, we are going to try to start working on  
ways to use some of the BIRN tools to add a visualization & atlasing  
component to the upcoming demo.  The intent is to start looking at  
how to do this with the AD Use Case, but as June pointed out in the  
BioRDF call yesterday, there are several reasons to want to pursue  
similar approaches with the PD Use Case, not least of which is we  
have within the BIRN well characterized light microscopic  
histological and MRI images, as well as some behavioral and molecular  
data derived from an alpha-synuclein mouse model of PD.

As I mentioned the other day, I've already asked one of the PIs on  
this project - Diana Price - to take a look at the HCLSIG PD Use  
Case, though I think that got lost over the holidays.  She's still  
away, but when she gets back, I'll just ask her to get in touch with  
Don & Helen and take a look at the current Wiki pages on the PD Use  
Case.

There is a very strong interest within BIRN both to address semantic  
frameworks capable of formally characterizing pathological  
observations and of driving semantic integration of basic findings  
with clinical data.  Seeing as the latter has especially been a topic  
where many - Helen, Chimezie, and others - have been providing  
valuable steps forward, I think there could be a lot to gain from  
investing in more synergistic collaborations that address specific  
semantic annotation, integration, and mining tasks within BIRN.

Cheers,
Bill
