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.
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 (currently in press) 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. His presentation was Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 7PM in the HWCC Benes Rooms on the Ohio Wesleyan University campus in Delaware, OH.
Akanksha Malhotra, a Futures Matter Program student in the Stewart Lab in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, won the award for Best Poster at the Summer Poster Competition at Nationwide Children's Hospital on August 5, 2016. The Futures Matter Program is an eight-week summer research experience for high school students on the campus of The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's.
