Thursday 4/15/10

We will not be meeting today because of the Human Biology Association meetings going on in Albuquerque. Students of the Seminar in Evolutionary Medicine are encouraged to do one of two excellent options – either attend the podium session at the HBA meeting to hear Dr. Kuzawa give another lecture, or go UNM department of Biology to hear Sam Loker give a talk on Evolution of the Immune System (see below). They are happening at the same time, otherwise I would do both!

I will be attending the session on Inflammation, Stress, and Health that begins at 3:45pm at the Albuquerque Hotel on Rio Grande Blvd:

Option A: PODIUM SESSION D: Inflammation, Stress and Health
Chair: Christie Rockwell
Weavers Room

Effects of diet, household economy and social stress on growth and health of indigenous Shuar of Ecuadorian Amazonia. LS SUGIYAMA, JJ SNODGRASS, AD BLACKWELL, FC MADIMENOS, MA LIEBERT.

Option B:

This Thursday (tomorrow), April 15th, Sam Loker will be presenting Biology’s Department Seminar at 3:30PM in 100 Castetter Hall.  The title of his talk will be, “Macroevolutionary Immunology”.  Light refreshments will be served in the basement of Castetter Hall prior to the seminar.
