AIBS to cohost symposium on evolution, disease and human health
Date:9/18/2007

y on the social and ethical issues related to DNA sampling of human populations, as well as policies around the use of racial taxonomies by publicly funded cell repositories. Her current project, Race and Distributive Justice in Pharmacogenomics Research, includes the development of an anthropology of racial justice, with a particular focus on health disparities among populations.
  • David Sloan Wilson, a professor in the departments of Biology and Anthropology at Binghamton University, will give a presentation titled Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin's Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives. Wilson uses evolutionary theory to study foraging behavior, altruism, and the nature of individual differences among organisms as diverse as microbes, zooplankton, insects, birds, fish, and humans. He is well known for his work on multilevel selection, in which the fundamental ingredients of evolution--variation, heritability, and fitness differences--can exist at all levels of the biological hierarchy. Dr. Wilsons newest book, Evolution for Everyone: How Darwin's Theory Can Change the Way We Think About Our Lives, is written for a general audience.
