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.
William Stewart, PhD, principal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, published an innovative solution to a problem that stumped statistical geneticists for more than three decades. The article, published online in the June 2016 issue of the journal Heredity, is titled "A Powerful Test of Independent Assortment that Determines Genome-Wide Significance Quickly and Accurately" and includes details on the solution and its implications.
Sayak Mukherjee, PhD, post-doctoral scientist in the Jayajit Das Lab in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, received a $1000 Science Travel Award for his poster presentation at the 15th Annual Trainee Research Day, hosted by The Ohio State University College of Medicine. The award will be used by Dr. Mukherjee to attend and present his research (the same project presented at Trainee Research Day) at a scientific meeting of his choice. Dr. Mukherjee's project is entitled "Reconstruction of Single Cell Signaling Trajectories Using Cytometry Data."
