Center for Machine Learning and Health at Carnegie Mellon University

The Center for Machine Learning and Health (CMLH) at Carnegie Mellon University is one of two centers launched under the umbrella of the Pittsburgh Health Data Alliance, formed in 2015 to unite Carnegie Mellon's unrivaled applied-computing capabilities, the University of Pittsburgh's world-class health-sciences research, and UPMC's clinical care and commercialization expertise. The CMLH supports great science and engineering that can lead to innovative health solutions and new businesses.


Fellowships in Digital Health

We invite applications for the Center for Machine Learning and Health (CMLH) Fellowships in Digital Health. Each fellowship provides full support for one year for a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University who is pursuing cutting-edge research that advances digital health, broadly defined. Check out our Fellowships page for more details.

This year's fellowship application deadline is Friday, March 31, 2017.


Project Funding

The next Call for Proposals will be announced in fall 2017.

From bench to bedside, the CMLH funds projects that strive to bridge the gap between research and practice. All funded work at CMLH will have a clear line of sight to commercial application. Although many CMLH projects will involve data analytics and machine learning, our approach is technology agnostic. We welcome proposals that involve human-computer interaction, language technologies, information systems, computer graphics, computer vision, artificial intelligence, robotics, electrical engineering, economics, psychology, sociology, public policy, business administration, law, design, and any other disciplines that apply to healthcare.

Funding is available at two levels. Awards for early-stage research projects are typically in the $200K–$400K range. Significantly larger awards are available for multiyear, follow-on projects that have demonstrated clear commercial potential.

In addition to offering funding, CMLH provides support for funded projects in the form of datasets, access to patients and doctors for empirical validation of new concepts, and entrepreneurial mentorship.
