 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Qiong Yang has a PhD in statistics and is Associate Professor of Biostatistics. Her main research interest is statistical methodology development and application for genetic studies. Her methodological interests include modeling multivariate phenotypes, rare variants analysis, family-based association tests, and multiple testing problems. She is the architect of GWAF, a R package for genome-wide association analyses in families. In past ten years, she has collaborated with many clinicians on various projects in the Framingham Heart Study, including renal diseases, hematological traits, lipids, hemostatic factors, stroke and cardiovascular disease.
