From the announcement materials, the "symposium will provide information on the current and potential regulatory framework for medical software development, guidelines for identifying when software becomes a medical device, and guidance on how to integrate the required practices into biomedical research."

The Center for Predictive Computational Phenotyping (CPCP) at UW-Madison

Transcription-based cellular phenotyping

The University of Wisconsin, in a partnership with the Morgridge Institute for Research and the
Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation, has received a grant from the NIH to establish the Center
for Predictive Computational Phenotyping (CPCP), which is one of the NIH's
new Centers of Excellence for Big Data Computing in the Biomedical Sciences.
The grant will provide nearly $11 million over a four-year period.
