BIOL 368: Ecology and Evolution of Disease

BIOL 368 (NJIT) and 28:120:368 (Rutgers) — Fall 2016

Ecology and Evolution of Disease

Ecology and Evolution of Disease is an undergraduate course I teach every other year at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, for students from both NJIT and Rutgers. It addresses those aspects of ecology and evolutionary biology most relevant to understanding the origin, dynamics and treatment of disease (both infectious and hereditary/genetic). It is particularly recommended for pre-health students, including those in the Accelerated Programs, and serves as an introduction to the science behind public health.

Students in the course will be posting short vignettes of related news items, so check out the blog.
