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.

The Third International Conference on Mathematical & Computational Medicine

The Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine will be hosting the 3rd Mathematical & Computational Medicine International Conference at The Blackwell in Columbus, Ohio from May 16-18, 2016.
