Bio

Trevor Bedford is an Assistant Member at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center affiliated with the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division and with the Computational Biology Program.

Research Interests

Dr. Bedford works at the interface of evolution, epidemiology and immunology. His research applies computational and statistical methods to understand viral dynamics. He is interested in using pathogen sequence data to make detailed inferences of pathogen transmission patterns. Previous research has focused on understanding antigenic drift in influenza virus, geographic spread of Ebola and within-host evolution of HIV.
