Celiac Disease: The Evolutionary Paradox by Kayla Morrell, Melissa K. Melby

Kayla heard Dr. Melby's Darwin Day talk on lactose intolerance in 2016, and as a first-year student reached out to discuss investigating celiac disease from an evolutionary perspective. She applied to be a summer research scholar - was accepted and began reviewing the literature on evolution and celiac disease. The pair continued working on this in fall 2017 as an independent study - writing and revising a section per week. Kayla is incredibly motivated and dedicated, and produced outstanding work!

This paper represents a great example of undergraduate research inspired by interdisciplinary events such as Darwin Day! Read the full work here!
