Biography

Dr. Peter Munson obtained his Masters in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1971 and his Ph.D. from American University, in 1986 in the field of mathematical statistics. He joined NIH in 1976 in the Endocrinology and Reproductive Research Laboratory, NICHD and applied his training to the refinement of mathematical models for receptor binding and radioimmunoassay. His most frequently cited early work describes a computer program, LIGAND, for analysis of receptor binding experiments, a technique for discovery and classification of receptors, such as opiate receptors in brain, hormone or drug receptors in many tissues. He came to lead the MSCL in 1999, with a mission of applying modern mathematical, statistical and computing techniques to diverse problems of biomedical interest.
