Karen Schlauch, PhD, is a mathematician in the Molecular Biosciences department of the University of Nevada, Reno, US.[1] She has worked on the genetics of chronic fatigue syndrome.

Education[edit | edit source]

  • 1989, B.S., Mathematics/Computer Science, University of Illinois[1]
  • 1991, M.A., Mathematics, Eastern Illinois University[1]
  • 1994, M.S., Mathematics, New Mexico State University[1]
  • 1998, Ph.D., Mathematics, New Mexico State University[1]

Research[edit | edit source]

Schlauch develops mathematical and statistical techniques to use in analysis of large and complex whole-Omics experiments for biological hypotheses.[1] Collaborating physicians, she has worked to predict possible associations of genotype and disease in conditions including pre-term labor, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Gulf War Syndrome, Alzheimer's disease and obesity.[1]

Schlauch is the lead statistical geneticist on the Healthy Nevada Project housed at the Desert Research Institute and Renown Hospital.[1]
