Early Career Writing Group!
A virtual writing group is being organized by Stacey Makhanova for early career evolutionary psychologists and evolutionary scientists more broadly who want some external motivation to get writing done and an opportunity to network (and commiserate) with people in similar career stages. For this group, “early career” means assistant professors, post-docs, and graduate students at the dissertation stage.

The OCEAN Speaker Series Presents Virtual Talk by Amy Boddy, PhD. entitled, Life history trade-offs in reproduction and cancer.
Abstract: Life history theory is a powerful approach to study human health and disease. However, there has been little work in applications of life history theory in cancer biology. Here I will discuss how cancer is fundamentally characterized by life history trade-offs. Using a newly curated comparative oncology dataset across a wide range of mammals, I show why some mammals may be more vulnerable to cancer than others. I suggest some of this cancer vulnerability is due to life history trade-offs in reproductive output and discuss how insights into life history and cancer can be useful for human health and disease.
Time and Date: Thursday February 25, 2021, 3:30 – 5:00 pm CST
The web address to sign up for the talk is: OCEAN SPEAKER SERIES – The Oklahoma Center for Evolutionary ANalysis (mystrikingly.com)
