Jennifer Gardy

Dr. Jennifer Gardy’s research uses genome sequencing as a tool to answer questions in public health and communicable disease control. She is particularly interested in how genomics can be used to reconstruct outbreaks of diseases like tuberculosis – information that helps us design better TB prevention and control programs. She also has a strong interest in using genomics and data science as tools for pandemic preparedness and prevention, as well as exploring how communication and information visualization can play a role in improving public health surveillance and outbreak response.

Dr. Gardy holds the Canada Research Chair in Public Health Genomics, and proudly serves on the National Academy of Medicine’s Forum on Microbial Threats.
