Mark Musen and the Knowledge Modeling Group from Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research have provided invaluable support in the development of the Foundational Model of Anatomy Ontology. Their knowledge representation expertise and their continued support and improvement of the Protégé knowledge modeling system have contributed significantly to the success of the FMA project.
Barry Smith from the National Center for Ontological Research (NCOR) at SUNY-Buffalo and the Institute for Formal Ontology and Medical Science Information (IFOMIS) at Saarland University in Germany has provided us guidance and support in building the proper ontology.
The development of the Foundational Model of Anatomy ontology has been supported by the National Library of Medicine through research grants LM006822 and LM06316, and research contract LM03528.
Additional support has been received from the University of Washington, the Murdock Charitable Trust and the Intel Corporation.
