According to Wikipedia, Jane M. Olson was an American genetic epidemiologist and biostatistician, "best known internationally for her contributions to advanced statistical methods in genetic epidemiology". Early life and education Olson was born on 6 December 1952 in Concord, New Hampshire in 1952, the sixth of seven children. Her father was one of three medical doctors in the town. In 1974, she was awarded a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of New Hampshire. After graduating she worked as a research assistant in the Biophysics Research Laboratory at Harvard Medical School. Although originally intending to pursue a medical degree, in 1978 Olson began a graduate program in psychology at Wayne State University. For several years she worked as a biostatistician, and ultimately entered a graduate program in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Michigan. She was awarded her M.S. in 1988 and then her Ph.D in 1991. Her work on segregation of the taste phenotype phenylthiocarbamide earned her a nomination for a student award at the 1988 meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics.
