Biography

Veronica J. Vieland, PhD, is vice president for Computational Research and the director of the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. She is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and in OSU’s Department of Statistics. In 2013, Dr. Vieland was named Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Dr. Vieland’s research focuses on statistical and computational methods for discovery of genetic influences on human disease. She is also interested more generally in the measurement of evidence in biomedical research.

Areas of Interest:

  • My focus is on the statistical and computational techniques that underlie human gene-mapping (localization of genes on the human genome), gene identification, and characterization of the genetic architecture of complex clinical phenotypes. My group has developed a novel class of quasi-Bayesian models, and much of our attention is devoted to ongoing expansion of the set of genetic features handled by the underlying likelihoods, together with evaluation of the efficacy of the models in the context of typical human data sets; the other arm of this work is the development of the high-performance computational approaches required for application of our statistical methods. I also collaborate actively on a number of clinical genetic studies. I have several funded projects focused on the genetics of autism, including, in addition to our own basic research, two projects in which our Center serves as the data coordinating site for large, international collaborations. Other projects in which I’ m currently involved are studying the genetics of cleft lip and palate, schizophrenia, autoimmune thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus, and congenital heart defects.

    Robust Likelihoods for Genetic Analysis: All statistical work in the Vieland lab is in the likelihood framework. Likelihoods are equations that can be used to capture all of the evidential information in a given set of data. However, in human genetics, likelihoods are also always approximations: we use "summary" or approximating likelihoods to capture key genetic information based on relatively small numbers of parameters. An important line of research therefore involves the assessment of particular approximating likelihoods for robustness in human genetic applications. In addition, because most standard theoretical results regarding likelihoods are derived in the context of exact likelihoods (e.g., a normal likelihood applied to normally distributed data), and because they do not necessarily apply to approximating likelihoods, special investigations are required to assay and document properties of approximating genetic likelihoods. A great deal of our focus has been on defining, evaluating, and adapting a core set of relatively simple likelihoods that appear to be highly robust in the context of human genetic studies. These investigations form the basis of our signature "PPL Framework," but also have important statistical genetic implications in their own right.
  • Absolute Evidence Measures: In human genetics, we tend to equate the strength of statistical evidence with either maximum likelihood ratio statistics (maxLRs) or p-values. However, both maxLRs and p-values have some undesirable properties as evidence measures when applied to human genetics and in many other settings. We are developing a coherent theoretical approach to formalizing statistical evidence measures, drawing heavily on lessons gleaned from the development of an absolute thermometric scale in the context of thermodynamics. We expect this project to lead to more effective ways of both finding and excluding genes for specific disease processes, and to have utility for other disciplines and experimental modalities as well.
  • KELVIN Development: Kelvin is a computer package in support of application of the PPL framework for measurement of evidence in statistical genetics. Kelvin’s approach to modeling genetic architecture is computationally intensive and requires continuous software development. Ongoing work focuses on efficient methods for constructing, storing, and evaluating genetic likelihoods represented as high-order polynomials, and for efficiently distributing computations across multiple compute nodes and/or making optimal use of multiple processors within nodes. An additional computational challenge is the need for integration of moderately high-dimensional functions lacking closed form solution. We use a modified version of DCUHRE, a sub-region adaptive algorithm using an embedded family of fully symmetric multiple quadrature rules, which integrates polynomials exactly over hypercubes in an efficient manner, and which we have adatpted for our specific purposes. Ongoing software engineering focuses on extending the complexity of the calculations that Kelvin can perform in order to address emerging data analytic needs, including such things as multipoint likelihood calculations in large and complex pedigrees based on dense SNP maps, and genetic analyses involving multiple interacting loci. Two closely related projects are the Modeling Genetic Architecture for Human Diseases, which utilizes Kelvin to implement a broad and flexible class of statistical genetic models, and Absolute Evidence Measurement, which focuses on optimal measurement of evidence in biological applications.Another related project is Kelviz, a suite of programs for visualization of Kelvin output.
  • Modeling Genetic Architecture for Human Diseases: We have developed the PPL framework as a unified platform for modeling multiple aspects of genetic architecture across disparate data structures. We have implemented this framework in the software package Kelvin. Kelvin can perform linkage and trait-marker linkage disequilibrium (association) analysis in pedigrees, “trios,” and/or case-control data, for dichotomous or quantitative traits. The framework includes flexible models for handling genetic complexity, including intra- and inter-dataset heterogeneity, gene-gene interactions, imprinting, and covariate effects. The addition of new data analytic functionality is ongoing. Two closely related projects are Kelvin Development, which harnasses state-of-the-art software engineering and high performance computing in support of Kelvin applications, and Absolute Evidence Measurement, which focuses on optimal measurement of evidence in biological applications.
