Science Sessions Podcast: Dr. Vieland Discusses Common Disconnect Between Scientists and Statisticians (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences)
Veronica Vieland, PhD, director of the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, uses statistics to better understand the complex genetic components of conditions such as autism, biopolar disorders, schizophrenia, cancer and muscular dystrophy.
Dr. Vieland is also a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
By using the power of mathematics, Dr. Vieland and her team are helping other health researchers in Columbus, Ohio and around the world identify the causes of disease, leading to better, more effective treatments for children everywhere.
