Pardis Sabeti

From Iran | Vilcek Prize Winner, Biomedical Science


Pardis Sabeti, born in Tehran, Iran, in 1975, has made important contributions to the understanding of both human resistance to disease and microbes’ evolved resistance to drug treatments. While studying malaria as a post-doctoral fellow in infectious disease and genomics at the Broad Institute, she developed an algorithm to identify recent changes in the human genome. Her discovery might eventually lead to better methods of defeating drug-resistant diseases. Sabeti is currently an associate professor at Harvard University, where she continues her research, and she was awarded the 2014 Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science.
