THE TALK: Darwinian Medicine: Maybe there IS something to this evolution thing

October 13, 2016

Abstract

Well developed branches of science such as chemistry and physics have foundational principles which provide an epistimological framework. The guiding tenet of biology is Evolution via Natural Selection, and although medicine is a branch of biology, the governing concept of biology is largely absent from medical practice. How might this situation impact modern medicine? What are practical processes for integrating evolutioanry theory in both medical research and clinical practice?
