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.
Veronica Vieland, PhD, director of the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, and Sang-Cheol Seok, PhD, systems programmer in the Vieland Lab, had an article published in the open-access journal Entropy in March 2016. The article is titled "Statistical Evidence Measured on a Properly Calibrated Scale for Multinomial Hypothesis Comparisons" and was published in the special issue, Statistical Significance and the Logic of Hypothesis Testing.
Jayajit Das, PhD, prinicipal investigator in the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, recently collaborated with Sayak Mukherjee, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the Das Lab at the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, and Karsten Sauer, PhD, from the Scripps Institute, on a project on thermocyte selection. The paper, entitled "Non-canonical antagonism of PI3K by the kinase Itpkb delays thymocyte β-selection and renders it Notch-dependent," was published in the journal eLife in February 2016.
