The new tangled bank of disease: from protein space to injection networks and COVID-19 disparities

This conversation was led by Brandon Ogbunu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. In this discussion, Dr. Ogbunu applied Darwin’s “tangled bank” analogy to several modern problems in public health and biomedicine. In doing so, he highlighted the increasing eminence of nonlinearity in understanding disease systems, ranging in scope from the molecular determinants of drug resistance to ethnic disparities in COVID-19 prevalence in the United States.
