UNM Medical School – Evolutionary Medicine

Welcome UNM SOM students to the University of New Mexico Evolutionary Medicine Elective (CLNS 835).

Readings and assignments will be posted here twice weekly. For the first session we will focus on the evolution of aging and evolutionary considerations of menopause. Evolution informs nearly all aspects of human life history. Frequencies of nearly all diseases vary with age and senescence. We will explore these issues in the coming week.
