Ellen E. Quillen

Dr. Quillen is a trained anthropologist and statistical and population geneticist. Her studies are focused on complex traits and include analyses of both normal variation and disease traits. Dr. Quillen is interested in applying integrated omic analyses to study age-related disorders and their molecular and physiological basis. Her initial training involved the identification of admixture and population history events that influence modern population-wide differences in pigmentation allele frequencies. She continued her research with family-based studies of schizophrenia through integration and analysis of multiple omic data (RNAseq and methylation data). Her ongoing work blends transcriptomic and epigenetic data with proteomics and metabolomics to better understand aging and metabolic disease in non-human primate models.
