The next speaker in the NLM Informatics and Data Science Lecture Series will be Dr. John Gennari, who will discuss “Semantic Annotations, Reuse and Reproducibility” on Wednesday, June 6 from 2 to 3 p.m. in Natcher Conference Center, balcony A.

Gennari has been a professor in biomedical and health informatics at the University of Washington for more than 15 years. His doctorate is in computer science, but he began working in biomedical informatics in the early 1990s, beginning with work on the Protégé knowledge representation and ontology development system. He has had a wide range of experiences on large, multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary projects, which led to his research focus of knowledge reuse and knowledge sharing. His expertise is in ontology development, standards and semantic web tools.

Gennari is the graduate program director at UW, overseeing the Ph.D. and research M.S. programs. He is currently on the NLM biomedical informatics, library and data sciences review committee.
