Conversation with Joanne S. Luciano about Health Care and Semantic Web

Published by at 8:48 am under Conversations with Tom,VistA

I had the pleasure of talking with Joanne S. Luciano of RPI’s Tetherless World Constellation in Cambridge, MA. on May 17, 2012.

Dr. Luciano has played a leading role in the BioPathways Consortium, in the creation and development of BioPAX and the establishment of the W3C initiative in the Health Care and Life Sciences. She is co-developer of the OWL-based BioPAX pathway ontology which has become the standard for pathway-related bio-research. She has made significant contributions to pathway modeling, and is familiar with systems such as EcoCYC, BIND, WIT, KEGG, SBML, and others. She has intimate familiarity with the relevant tools such as Stanford’s Protégé knowledge acquisition tool and the underlying Semantic Web technologies including OWL and RDF. These skills together with her extensive interactions with the multi-disciplinary community of researchers, places her in a unique position to contribute to projects with her skill, contacts, and know-how. Of particular significance is her ability to effectively communicate with specialists in a range of disciplines (computer science, biology, medicine, physics) which enables effective cross-disciplinary collaborative research.
