Cafe Scientifique - Health and the disposable caveman: understanding disease using evolution
-

Aberdeen University's Cafe Sci series takes place monthly with all events free to attend. No booking is required, places are allocated on a first-come basis. All events are pitched at a very accessible level and give ample time for audience questions

Far from being the “wondrous process” described by wildlife documentaries, evolution is a horrifically cruel process. Can the resulting scars on our genomes be put to good use, to understand not only health but also the causes of disease?
