    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease and the major cause of dementia, affecting more than 50 million people worldwide. Chronic pain is long-lasting, persistent pain that affects more than 1.5 billion of the world population. READ MORE

  3. 3. Two Optimization Problems in Genetics Multi-dimensional QTL Analysis and Haplotype Inference

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Carl Nettelblad; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; quantitative trait loci; genome-wide association studies; hidden Markov models; numerical optimization; linkage analysis; haplotype inference; genotype imputation; high performance computing;

    Abstract : The existence of new technologies, implemented in efficient platforms and workflows has made massive genotyping available to all fields of biology and medicine. Genetic analyses are no longer dominated by experimental work in laboratories, but rather the interpretation of the resulting data. READ MORE

    Abstract : The pharmaceutical industry is facing a research and development productivity crisis. At the same time we have access to more biological data than ever from recent advancements in high-throughput experimental methods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Benefits of Non-Linear Mixed Effect Modeling and Optimal Design Pre-Clinical and Clinical Study Applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Charles Ernest II; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacometrics; optimal design; nonlinear mixed effects models; population models; Pharmaceutical Science; Farmaceutisk vetenskap;

    Abstract : Despite the growing promise of pharmaceutical research, inferior experimentation or interpretation of data can inhibit breakthrough molecules from finding their way out of research institutions and reaching patients. This thesis provides evidence that better characterization of pre-clinical and clinical data can be accomplished using non-linear mixed effect modeling (NLMEM) and more effective experiments can be conducted using optimal design (OD).
