About Pardis Sabeti's Work

Our lab works in a wide variety of fields — such as evolutionary genomics, viral sequencing, information theory, rural disease surveillance, and education — towards creating comprehensive approaches for detecting, containing, and treating deadly infectious diseases. The microbes we study include Lassa virus, Ebola virus, Zika virus, Plasmodium falciparum malaria, and Babesiosis microtia. We have invested in capacity building and education throughout, enabling the first diagnosis of Ebola in Sierra Leone and Nigeria, training over seventy African scientists through summer-long educational programs, and establishing genome centers in West Africa.
