Harvard: Pardis Sabeti Awarded Future Insight Prize

Dr. Pardis Sabeti, professor of immunology and infectious diseases at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and professor at the Center for Systems Biology and Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University, has been awarded half of a 1 million euros ($1.1 million) grant called the Future Insight Prize. Awarded by Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, for the first time, the annual prize is aimed at triggering curiosity and creativity worldwide on how to bring “ambitious dream products” into reality — in this case, a “pandemic protector.” The prize is being split equally between Dr. Sabeti and Dr. James Crowe of Vanderbilt University. Dr. Sabeti was recognized for identifying innovative genetic technologies for the detection and treatment of infectious diseases like Ebola and the Lassa virus.
