  • Information Extraction
  • Biomedical text mining

Fabio Rinaldi is a lecturer and senior researcher at the University of Zurich. Since November 2016 he is a part-time researcher at FBK.

He is the initiator and team leader of the OntoGene group, which focuses on Text Mining for biomedical applications.

Currently he is principal investigator of the SNFS-funded MelanoBase project, and is also involved in a large NIH-funded project focused on assisted curation for the RegulonDB database, where he applies technologies previously developed within the scope of his previous SNFS-funded project SASEBio (Semi-Automated Semantic Enrichment of the Biomedical Literature). Other projects in which he is currently involved deal with text mining for psychological disorders (PsyMine) and for veterinary applications (VetSuisse).
