Dr. Pardis Sabeti is an Associate Professor at the Center for Systems Biology at Harvard University, Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, and in the Department of Immunology and Infectious Disease at Harvard School of Public Health, and is a Senior Associate Member of the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT.
Dr. Sabeti is a computational geneticist with expertise studying genetic diversity, developing algorithms to detect genetic signatures of natural selection, and carrying out genetic association studies. She completed her undergraduate degree at MIT and her PhD at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, before returning to earn her medical degree from Harvard Medical School as a Soros Fellow. Dr. Sabeti’s lab focuses on detecting and characterizing signals of natural selection in humans and pathogens.
Dr. Sabeti is supported by a Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award, a Packard Foundation Fellowship in Science and Engineering, and an NIH Innovator award, and awards from NIAID, TMTI, and the Gates Foundation. Dr. Sabeti is a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, a PopTech Science Fellow, and is the lead singer of the alternative rock band Thousand Days.
