Celebrating ECRs - Dr Kathryn McNamara - Ecological immunology
My research has focussed on ecological immunology, a field which explores the fundamental trade-offs that occur between immune function and reproduction, and other costly life-history traits. I will give an overview of my research where I use invertebrate model species to examine the role of immunity in shaping the expression of sexually-selected traits.
Following the seminar, a light lunch will be provided in Drummond North, BioSciences 4
