Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine

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.

  • Veronica J. Vieland, PhD, director of the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, and Susan Hodge, DSc, principal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, published a paper on "Information Loss in Binomial Data Due to Data Compression" in the journal Entropy. The paper explores the idea of information loss through data compression, which occurs in the course of any data analysis.

  • Susan Hodge, DSc, principal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, in collaboration with David Greenberg, PhD, also a principal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, recently published research in Human Heredity, the international journal of human and medical genetics. The article is titled "How can we explain very low odds ratios in GWAS? I. Polygenic models."

  • William Ray, PhD, principal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, was a speaker for the 2016-2017 Sagan National Colloquium this fall, which will address the growing importance of data in our lives.
