Clinical Evolutionary Medicine Group ☛ Nicole Bender MD

The Clinical Evolutionary Medicine group investigates the evolutionary roots of modern human diseases.

Presentation of the Group

We employ a variety of methods such as systematic reviews and meta-analyses, mathematical modelling, and the analysis of large population data sets to investigate associations between risk factors and disease outcomes, and interpret the results in light of evolutionary biology. With this approach, we aim to add novel insights into the etiology of diseases, and improve approaches to prevention and treatment of diseases.
