Elodie Ghedin is a Professor of Biology and Global Public Health in the Center for Genomics & Systems Biology at New York University. Her laboratory uses comparative genomics, evolutionary biology, and systems biology techniques to generate critical insight about host-pathogen interactions (ghedinlab.org). She studies microbial and viral population structures, and how these impact host response to infection and emerging infectious diseases. Her more recent focus is on characterizing influenza virus diversity within and across infected hosts, and the interactions of microbes in the respiratory tract, to better understand the dynamics of viral transmission and evolution. Prof. Ghedin was named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow in 2011.
