The mission of the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine is to apply innovative mathematical, statistical and computational techniques to enable, inform and improve basic and clinical biomedical research. Established in 2006, the center was renamed in 2007 following a transformative gift of $5 million from Battelle Memorial Institute.
The Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine will host the 3rd Mathematical & Computational Medicine International Conference at The Blackwell in Columbus, Ohio from May 16-18, 2016.
Jayajit Das, PhD, a principal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, published a paper in the September 2015 issue of Immunological Reviews entitled "NK Cells: Tuned by Peptide?" Dr. Das and his colleague, Salim Khakoo, MD, professor of Hepatology at the University of Southhampton, demonstrated that two receptor:ligand systems appear to have complementary functions in recognizing changes in major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I, for which natural killer (NK) cells express multiple receptors.
William C. Ray, PhD, a principal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, helped create a 3D-printed model to facilitate the work of a surgical team consisting of over 30 specialists from plastic surgery, colorectal surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesiology and nursing which led to the successful separation of Acen and Apio, conjoined twin girls from Uganda.
