Back in his school days, science was a powerful magnet that kept pulling Dr. Jesse Bloom into many possible directions. It didn’t matter if it was math, computer sciences, biology, chemistry and physics. He loved them all.
At any other time, he may have been forced to choose one field alone, but Bloom came into science at the right time, as computers were becoming deeply integrated with biology. In one fell swoop, Bloom found his calling.
Today, Bloom carries dual appointments at Fred Hutch. He is an evolutionary biologist in the Basic Sciences Division. And his computational expertise also earned him a spot in the Public Health Sciences Division’s Herbold Computational Biology Program.
