A variety of educational opportunities exist in the following areas:
Baylor University has multiple degree options. There are several faculty members specializing in biological anthropology and students are pursuing a range of dissertation projects, from hormone-mediated immunity to human-wildlife interactions.
At this time, I am particularly excited to hear from students interested in one of the following project topics: estrogen-mediated immunity, immunological senescence in Great apes, oral and fecal microbiomes of chimpanzees, evolution of human sickness behaviors (and parasite-mediated host behaviors), evolution of disgust and
avoidance behaviors, vaccination acceptance in immigrant populations, immunological outcomes of fatherhood, evolutionary biology in medical education, experimental conservation psychology, primate-based tourism and biophilia, and human-wildlife conflict.
