Biomedical Mathematicians?
All of the following mathematicians share a common element...they made significant contributions to biomedicine as well (in the combined fields of biology, physiology, and medicine). Can you identify them...by unscrambling their names?
 STUIRCOMED: I was a geometer who studied and dissected animals
 KLEERP: Known as a mathematician and astronomer, I also studied pupillary contraction and nearsightedness
 TRACSEEDS: I founded analytic geometry, but also studied nerve networks and wrote the first text in physiology
 LOUNLIBER: I contributed to probability, equation theory, and differential equations, while also integrating mathematics into epidemiology and calculating cardiac output
 NOBUFF: I invented geometric probability, and also established the foundations of genetics and evolution
 RIDEDOT: I contributed to mathematics in areas of differential equations and geometry, but also contributed to psychology, physiology, and theory of natural selection
 CAPELLA: I was a key researcher in differential equations and probability, but also interpreted respiration as a form of slow biological oxidation
 RATREVOL: Though known for my work in functional analysis and integral equations, I also studied population models in mathematical ecology
 YARDH: I am known best for my work in number theory and analysis, but also have eponymic fame for my work in population genetics
