The Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine’s mission is to apply innovative mathematical, statistical and computational techniques to enable, inform and improve basic and clinical biomedical research.
Our highly collaborative, diverse group has combined expertise in statistical modeling in genetics, biophysics, parallel computing, computational algorithms and databases.
With a team-based, quantitative approach to research, we can more effectively identify the need for new analytical tools, develop approaches to address complex scientific questions, and ultimately improve clinical care in pediatrics.
The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s recognized the importance of these areas of focus and invested in a new Center of Emphasis in 2006. In 2007, the center was renamed the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine following a transformative gift of $5 million from Battelle Memorial Institute, which also established the Battelle Chair in Quantitative and Computational Biology.
Our location on the Nationwide Children’s Hospital main campus facilitates cooperation among investigators from other research centers and the hospital.
