We study how the host adaptive immune response coevolves with pathogens, especially in ways relevant to epidemiological and evolutionary forecasting, vaccine design, and pathogen diversity. Our work is computational, and we collaborate closely with immunologists and epidemiologists.
Welcome to Jessie Schmidt, our new grants specialist and program manager!

Congratulations to Phil, who has started as new faculty at Wesleyan University; to Katie, who is leading a new group at CDC's Center for Forecasting and Outbreak Analytics; to Diana, who has transitioned to a bioinformatics position at U. Chicago's Center for Research Informatics; and to Qifang, who has turned to the "dark side" (her words) of consulting! Unsurprisingly, the lab is hiring again!
