We advance science by removing conceptual and methodological roadblocks. Through high-level biological theory, we promote an integrative approach to research in non-communicable diseases.
We encourage an integrative approach to non-communicable diseases by harnessing the potential of biological theory and evolutionary medicine.
Our research in non-communicable diseases aims to:
Combining expertise in the philosophy of science with the knowledge of bioscience, we obtain scientific value from theoretical work on key aspects of the scientific process.
Our largest project conducts foundational research on how to measure and integrate the genetic, epigenetic and exogenetic causes of phenotypes – the observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment.
