Lecture by Pardis Sabeti
Assistant Professor in Harvard University’s Center for Systems Biology and Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology
Charles Darwin and Alfred R. Wallace first presented the theory of evolution 150 years ago, yet their ideas still thrive in modern science. Harvard's Pardis Sabeti, a trailblazer in genomic research and one of today’s “top 100 living geniuses,” will discuss how contemporary scientists are applying the principles of natural selection to mine the human genome and untangle the forces that have shaped our species. Dr. Sabeti is an assistant professor in Harvard University’s Center for Systems Biology and Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. She is also an associate member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
Lecture presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History.
