Apollo Project Funded
Tuesday, 17 April 2012
The National Institute of General and Medical Sciences has funded a proposal entitled, "Apollo: Increasing Access and Use of Epidemic Models Through the Development and Adoption of a Standard Ontology."   The major goals of this project are to (1) develop a standard vocabulary for the field of epidemic modeling using a tool called Protégé; (2) create two extensions to Protégé that are needed by the project; (3) develop a standard syntax using the vocabulary for representing the inputs (e.g., disease control measures) and outputs of epidemic models and to use this syntax in an existing system called the Apollo Web Services that makes it possible for other computer programs to access epidemic models; and (4) to increase the capacity to run epidemic models on supercomputers so as to demonstrate the value of the work of the first three aims. Drs. Michael Wagner and William Hogan are the Principal Investigators of the four year project.
