About the Speaker: Ashlee Earl is a Research Scientist and Group Leader of Bacterial Genomics at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard. Within the Broad Institute’s Genome Center for Infectious Diseases, Earl is working to understand the relationship between microbes and human health including how multi-drug resistant pathogens emerge and spread.
She coordinated much of the Broad’s research in the Human Microbiome Project and now leads a team of computational biologists to develop and utilize an array of ‘omics analytical approaches to dissect bacterial and host contributions to several infectious diseases. She has organized and led dozens of local and international collaborations to bring genomic approaches to the study of tuberculosis, urinary tract infections and hospital-acquired infections caused by the enterococci and carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae.
Earl received a B.S. and Ph.D. in microbiology from Louisiana State University and trained as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School before joining the Broad Institute in 2009.
