Jesse Bloom has been awarded the 2015 Young Investigator in Virology Award.

The 2015 Young Investigator in Virology Award for excellence in virology research goes to Dr. Jesse D. Bloom . After receiving his Ph.D. with Frances Arnold, he carried out postdoctoral work with David Baltimore, both at Caltech. Since 2011 he has been an Assistant Member in the Division of Basic Sciences at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Dr. Bloom’s research combines experimental and computational approaches to study influenza virus. A major strength of his research is to seamlessly integrate molecular virology, next-generation sequencing, and computational biology to ask critical questions about influenza virus evolution. Dr. Bloom will also have the opportunity to present his work at the Viruses 2016 - At the Forefront of Virus–Host Interactions conference, 26–28 January 2016, Basel, Switzerland.
