The Structural Informatics group at the University of Washington Medical center is an interdisciplinary team of computer scientists, engineers and biologists with emphasis on the development of methods for representing, managing, visualizing and uilizing information about the physical organization of the body(from the Web site).

The group is led by Jim Brinkeley in collaboration by Prof. Cornellius Rosse and Prof. Linda Shapiro.

Goals(from the Web site) :

1)To develop methods for representing both spatial and symbolic information about the physical organization of the body.

2)To develop Web-accessible computer programs which utilize these representations to solve practical problems in clinical medicine, research and education.

3)To initially apply these representations to the domain of gross anatomy, and to develop applications in education, clinical medicine and research.
