Babbitt Receives NSF Grant for Research on Brain Evoluition in Humans and Chimps

Courtney Babbitt, Assistant Professor of Biology, has received a three-year, $330,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to use new state-of-the-art computational, evolutionary and experimental methods to examine how natural selection has shaped gene expression in the human brain. Babbitt and colleagues will test the hypothesis that there are functional links between adaptation in the genome and changes in neural types that occurred during human evolution.
