Research Description: "Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution” applies as much in the clinic as anywhere else. The difference is that our efforts to treat cancer and infectious diseases both speeds up, and direct evolution of the malady to higher fitness peaks than would be achieved in natural settings. Rather than focussing on individual mutation, we use a combination of mathematical models, experimental evolution and data science to study the process of the evolution of resistance itself.
