Biography

Dr. Shriner received his Bachelor's (summa cum laude) from the Department of Microbiology at the University of Maryland, College Park in 1995, with an interest in pathogenic microbiology. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington, Seattle, in 2003. Under the supervision of Dr. James Mullins, Dr. Shriner studied the population genetics of human immunodeficiency virus type 1, focusing on recombination and metapopulation dynamics. Also at the University of Washington, he studied viral mutation and migration rates under the supervision of Dr. John Mittler.

Dr. Shriner joined the Department of Nutrition Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2005. Under the supervision of Drs. David Allison and Nengjun Yi in the Section on Statistical Genetics in the Department of Biostatistics, Dr. Shriner focused on Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo methods as applied to mapping quantitative trait loci for obesity in model organisms. He contributed code to the R package qtlbim (www.qtlbim.org) for Bayesian model selection using the deviance information criterion, and for posterior inference by jointly maximizing positive and negative predictive values.

In 2008, Dr. Shriner joined the Center for Research on Genomics and Global Health within the National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institutes of Health. Methodological research includes the development of methods for multivariable analysis of genome-wide association data as well as investigation into global patterns of human genetic variation. Applied research includes mapping genetic variants that influence obesity and anthropometric traits (such as waist circumference and waist/hip ratio) as well as mapping genetic variants that influence the risk of developing Alzheimer or Parkinson disease, the two most common neurodegenerative diseases.
