I am a ecologist and evolutionary biologist and have spent most of my career integrating evolutionary biology with the health sciences. Holly and I are currently working to develop a general evolutionary theory of cancer. We recently published a short (hopefully generally accessible) TED e-book on the first stage of this work, called Controlling Cancer. A tome is forthcoming.
