This course explores ways in which an understanding of evolutionary mechanisms both aids in the understanding of disease processes and informs the development of effective treatments. Emphasis will be placed on ‘civilized diseases’, which result from mismatch between our evolutionary history and modern lifestyles. In addition to evolution within our species, the course will examine co-evolutionary processes between pathogens/parasites and their human hosts.
