Elizabeth B. Claus, M.D. ’94, Ph.D. ’94, associate professor of public health (biostatistics), has been awarded a five-year, $9.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, for the first large national effort to study risk factors associated with a diagnosis of meningioma, the most frequently reported of primary intracranial neoplasms. This study is important because of the lack of information about the disease, the large number of patients with this diagnosis and this tumor’s frequent association with neurological complications and decreased quality of life.
