Carlos Bustamante

Stanford professor, population geneticist, and MacArthur “Genius” Fellow Carlos Bustamante analyzes genome-wide patterns of variation within and between species to address fundamental questions in biology, anthropology, and medicine. The Bustamante Lab uses a rigorous, quantitative approach to exploring evolution across species, patterns of population migration, and the complex origins of pre and post-history human genetic diversity.  A co-founding director of the Stanford Center for Computational, Human and Evolutionary Genomics, he also leads informatics at Stanford’s Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine. At TEDMED 2014, he is Stanford’s inaugural co-host.
