Pittsburgh Health Data Alliance Funds Clinical Genomics Project led by CBD Professors Kingsford and Langmead
The Clinical Genomics Modeling Platform, a system for easily creating and deploying predictive models to help physicians make treatment decisions, is the first Carnegie Mellon University project to be funded by UPMC Enterprises under the umbrella of the Pittsburgh Health Data Alliance. UPMC’s funding for the initial set of projects, including several from the University of Pittsburgh, is expected to total more than $3 million over the next six months. The Clinical Genomics Modeling Platform project is being led by CBD’s associate professors, Carl Kingsford and Christopher Langmead. It is part of CMU’s Center for Machine Learning and Health, which is directed by Eric Xing, Professor of Machine Learning, Language Technologies and Computational Biology.
