IB 534 A - Evolution and Medicine
Explores how human health is inseparably tied to our evolutionary history. Principles that apply to human health include evolutionary processes, e.g. natural selections, as well as molecular evolution, human evolution, and evolutionary-developmental biology. Explores how these principles can be applied to understand human nutrition and metabolism, reproduction, disease and stress, and behavior. These principles assist physicians, researchers, and the general public in understanding how natural selection has acted on humans over time and left us vulnerable to disease and injury. In this course, students also produce teaching materials for their classrooms.
