Epidemiological and evolutionary dynamics of pathogens in time and space

Innovative population biologist Bryan T. Grenfell (2022 Kyoto Prize Laureate in Basic Sciences) whose methodology of analysis of pathogen evolution and epidemics has been instrumental in producing effective disease control measures gives a lecture for the Kyoto Prize at Oxford.

Grenfell proposed “phylodynamics,” a methodology that predicts infectious disease dynamics of RNA viruses by considering viral evolution, and thus contributed to the development of the research field that integrates immune dynamics, epidemiology, and evolutionary biology. By virtue of these achievements, he has been instrumental in understanding infection mechanisms and proposing effective infectious disease control policies.
