2024 Fellow

Megan O’Driscoll

PhD Institution
University of Cambridge

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic highlighted the vast unpreparedness of current global disease surveillance methods for detecting and responding to emerging biological threats.

Megan plans to develop open-source analytical platforms to support immunological surveillance efforts for future epidemic and pandemic preparedness.

As a 2024 Schmidt Science Fellow she will combine systems immunology and artificial intelligence methodologies to build integrative models of multiple immune components and their dynamic interactions that shape human immune system responses to infection and vaccination.
