Group Leader, Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard

Daniel Park is the group leader for viral computational genomics at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Under the direction of Institute Member Pardis Sabeti, Park leads the genomic analysis and development of computational methods for viral projects at the Broad, including work on Ebola, Lassa, and unidentified viral fevers. Park joined the Broad in 2006, and was awarded a Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation in 2010. Park earned his Ph.D. in organismic and evolutionary biology from Harvard University in 2013, where he developed and utilized computational tools to identify adaptations in the P. falciparum malaria parasite that allow it to evade modern drugs and global eradication efforts.
