Talk Title: Unraveling the impact of population structure, admixture, and adaptation on patterns of genetic diversity in distinct African populations

The Center for Genetic Epidemiology is hosting an in-person and virtual seminar with Michael C. Campbell, Ph.D (https://dornsife.usc.edu/profile/michael-campbell/)Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California. Dr. Campbell completed his undergraduate studies (B.Sc.) in Biological Anthropology at the University of Toronto, Canada, and his Master’s degree (M.Sc.) in Human Biology at the University of Oxford, England. He obtained his Ph.D. in the area of Human Evolutionary Genetics from Columbia University and completed his post-doctoral training in Genetics in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He then held an Associate Research Scientist position in Biostatistics at the Yale University School of Public Health. Prior to joining the faculty at USC, Dr. Campbell was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Howard University in Washington D.C. Dr. Campbell’s research interests lie at the intersection of genomic variation, evolution, and the emergence of human traits. His areas of focus include human population history, the genomic basis of normal variable traits and complex disease, and computational methods development. 

In-person attendance is encouraged, however, if you are unable to attend, please join us virtually.
