Institute for Systems Biology (ISB) is a collaborative cross-disciplinary nonprofit biomedical research organization based in Seattle. In 2020, ISB is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a four-part virtual speaker series highlighting some of the most important topics in science and health care.

ISB and Town Hall proudly present microbiome researcher and professor Dr. Eric Alm. Following Dr. Alm’s talk on low-cost pandemic tracking efforts in hundreds of cities, using data collected from sewage, he’ll be joined in conversation by ISB Assistant Professor Dr. Sean Gibbons for an in-depth discussion and audience questions.

Dr. Eric Alm is a professor of biological engineering at MIT. He earned his PhD from the University of Washington, and then completed postdoctoral work at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab before joining the MIT faculty. His research focuses on non-invasive monitoring of human health, environmental surveillance, sewage epidemiology, and more.
