From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
is an interdisciplinary academic field of biology, biological anthropology, and medicine which focuses on humans; it is closely related to primate biology, and a number of other fields. The human biology major was founded in 1970 at Stanford University.Human biology research encompasses:
Genetic variation across human populations, present and past
Biological variation related to climate and other elements of the natural environment
Determinants, across populations, of risk for degenerative disease and infectious disease
Human growth and development
While undisputed boundaries do not exist, human biology is typically distinguished from conventional medical research by an enhanced focus on international, population-level perspectives on health, and on human evolution, adaptation, and population genetics rather than individual diagnosis.
