Our #HCWC #WCW this week is Dr. Pardis Sabeti, a professor in the Organismic and Evolutionary Biology department. Dr. Sabeti was featured in TIME 2015’s 100 Most Influential People for her work in identifying that the ebola virus was being transmitted from human to human and not through animal vectors or other sources. She and her lab constantly do significant global health related science research for malaria, ebola, and lassa fever. Pretty awesome!!
Dr. Sabeti is also a musician. In her free time she is also the lead singer of the band Thousand Days, a female-fronted alternative rock band that performs in Boston. Their songs are available for streaming on Soundcloud!
In summary, Pardis Sabeti is a rockstar–both literally and figuratively- who challenges, motivates, and inspires us at the women’s center not only to break barriers in academia, and to help people around the world, but also to have fun and do what we love, whatever it may be!
