Christine McLaren, Statistician and Educator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership.
Dr. McLaren chose her profession due to being motivated by her love of mathematics and accompanied by the inspiration from her high school teachers. She originally thought she would become a professional flutist, but upon attending the University of Southern California, she was pulled to statistics. In her academic pursuits, she earned a Bachelor of Science in mathematics with distinction from San Jose University in 1969, an AM in mathematics education from Stanford University in 1970, a Master of Science in mathematics and statistics from Case Western Reserve University in 1976 and a PhD in biostatistics from the institution in 1983.

She has previous teaching and leadership experience at Case Western Reserve University and Moorhead State University.
Though Dr. McLaren personally considers earning a PhD and working at the cancer center at the University of California, Irvine as the highlights of her career, she has been honored on numerous occasions for her work. These include a Stanford University Prospective Teacher fellowship, a Case Western Reserve University Tuition fellowship, an American Heart Association research fellowship, and a University of Glasgow Senior Honors Research fellowship among others. Furthermore, Dr. McLaren was named the Minnesota College Science Teacher of Year from the Minnesota Academy Science and Minnesota Science Teachers Association in 1996.
