Frieda Butler Memorial Lecture: Healthy Cardiovascular Profiles Across the Lifespan in Wild-Born Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes)
Start Date: Feb 19, 2021 - 10:00am
Location: Presented via Zoom
The Frieda Butler Memorial Lecture: Healthy Cardiovascular Profiles Across the Lifespan in Wild-Born Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) was presented by Megan Cole, UNM Evolutionary Anthropology student as part of the Spring 2021 Anthropology Colloquia Speaker Series on Friday, February 19 at 10 am.
In this talk, Megan will present her master’s research, which examined how cardiovascular biomarkers relate to lifestyle and aging across chimpanzee populations, and discuss how these findings contribute to an emerging understanding of human cardiovascular health from an evolutionary perspective.
Megan received her B.S. in Anthropology from the University of Michigan in 2013 and her M.S. in Anthropology from the University of New Mexico in 2020. She is currently a doctoral candidate in Evolutionary Anthropology at UNM and a graduate student researcher with the Kibale Chimpanzee Project. Her dissertation investigates how temperament and stress physiology contribute to patterns of social influence in wild chimpanzees.
Hosted by the Department of Anthropology, the Alfonso Ortiz Center for Intercultural Studies, and the Latin American and Iberian Institute (LAII) the Department Colloquia Speaker Series will be held virtually via Zoom on Fridays at 10 am, and will be made available on our You Tube account following the event.
