Research Scientist, BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS
Assistant Professor of Medicine, University of British Columbia

  

Wednesday, October 17, 12-1PM 

Hurlburt Auditorium, Providence Building Level 2, St. Paul's Hospital

 A light lunch will be served.

 

Dr. Jeffrey B. Joy is a research scientist at the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS (BC-CfE) in bioinformatics and evolutionary genetics and an Assistant Professor of medicine at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Dr. Joy received his Ph.D in evolutionary genetics from Simon Fraser University. His research centres on applications of evolutionary genetics (phylogenetics, population genetics and molecular evolution) in medicine and public health. Currently, his research group is focused on analyzing the dynamics of the Canadian HIV and HCV epidemics, quantifying rates of HIV migration between anatomical compartments including cellular reservoirs, and development of novel methods for understanding epidemic dynamics at all levels of epidemic hierarchies (within patient, to population, to epidemic) based on pathogen sequence data.
