BIO 264 - Evolutionary Medicine
Evolutionary concepts help explain why we remain vulnerable to disease, how pathogens and cancer cells evolve, and how the diseases that affected our evolutionary ancestors have shaped our biology. In this seminar, we will read and discuss a new book by Stearns and Medzhitov (2015): Evolutionary Medicine. Topics include defense mechanisms, pathogen evolution, cancer, reproductive medicine, mismatch, and mental disorders.
