Fred Hutch evolutionary biologist Dr. Harmit Malik, a member of the Basic Sciences Division and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, studies genetic conflict, the evolutionary arms races that shape how genes (and the proteins they encode) evolve. A deeper understanding of this phenomenon, which includes the arms race between viruses and their hosts, could have implications for human health, such as providing insights that lead to improved HIV drugs.
