The Evolutionary Immunology and Genomics lab, directed by J.F. Brinkworth, investigates the evolution and ecology of the immune system using a broad range of immunological, genomic and computational techniques. We are based in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
The lab welcomes new members
