Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Most students understand that biology is the basis for modern medicine.  And most teachers have heard the quote that "nothing in biology makes sense, except in the light of evolution."  Yet few of us think of evolutionary biology as an applied science that can actually improve human health.  But this is exactly what several scientists and physicians are discovering--understanding and applying evolutionary concepts to humans can produce remarkable insights to understand and treat many human ailments.  In my talk, I will introduce you to the field of evolutionary medicine, and will provide you with several fun examples that you can share with students to show them that evolution informs all facets of biology, including the applied discipline of human medicine.
