Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection is the most important principle of modern biology. Yet, evolutionary theory has largely been ignored by most fields of research on the human condition, including public health and epidemiology. More recent trends in infectious disease epidemiology have utilized evolutionary thinking to better understand host-parasite interactions and guide vaccine development.

Dr. Grandinetti's presentation explores how evolutionary thinking may provide a theoretical model to identify risk factors for diseases, and guide future public health interventions and health promotion.
