Andrea Graham delivers a free, public lecture as part of the Intra-Disciplinary Seminar series.
Andrea is an Associate Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. She earned an A.B. in Biology and Sculpture from Mount Holyoke College and a Ph.D. in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from Cornell University. Andrea completed postdoctoral training and independent research fellowships at the University of Edinburgh before moving to Princeton in 2011. Graham’s main interests are the causes and consequences of immunological heterogeneity in mammals. Her focal research questions include: Why, evolutionarily, do immune systems harm their bearers? How does environment alter host genetic effects on immune defenses? Why do immune systems differ in sensitivity and specificity of induced responses to infection?
The Fall 2018 IDS Lecture Series at The Cooper Union is organized by Leslie Hewitt and Omar Berrada.
