EEB Virtual Seminar: Causes and implications of sex difference in immune function

Jess Metcalf, Associate Professor in Ecology, Evolution and Public Affairs, Princeton University
Thursday, April 8, 2021
3:00-4:00 PM
Both chromosomes and hormones are important modulators of immune function, driving rather different profiles of pathogen defense in males and females. Theoretical models based around trade-offs linked to immune function can bound expectations for what patterns of difference might evolve. Existing data illustrates the nuances emergent from the dynamic nature of immunity, and likely implications for human health.
