New PhD course in MEDICAL GEOBIOLOGY: Evolutionary processes affecting health


19-23 August 2024 at the University of Copenhagen

Medical Geobiology examines the evolutionary interplay between life forms, their environments, and the pressures that shape them both. It integrates principles from medical microbiology, evolutionary biology, biophysics, tumor biology, and geology, crafting a holistic view of health that transcends the boundaries traditionally set by these areas. This approach not only helps us understand present conditions but also, crucially, allows us to predict future health scenarios. Our course, “Evolutionary Processes Affecting Health – Medical Geobiology,” is designed to train the next generation of scientists in these comprehensive, integrative techniques.
