In 2004, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard launched with a mission to improve human health. Since that time, biology and medicine have evolved in astonishing ways, and so have we. Our community now includes more than four thousand scientists, software engineers, and more, with collaborations in more than three dozen countries.
We think the amazing pace of scientific progress is a story worth sharing. In celebration of our 15th anniversary, in 2019 and 2020 we hosted a series of public talks that trace the evolution of key fields of science and medicine over our first 15 years, and look ahead to how these fields might continue to evolve in the future.
We invite you to experience the entire series of Broad@15 talks, and to share them with your family and friends.
Infectious diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis, Ebola, and Lassa fever impact hundreds of millions of people every year. Patients around the world continue to face challenges with antibiotic resistance. Physician scientist Deb Hung and computational geneticist Pardis Sabeti will tell the story of how researchers are using advanced chemical and genomic tools to tackle drug resistance and infectious diseases by working with individual patients and global communities.
