Kate Clancy is an assistant professor (second year on the tenure track) of anthropology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This is a truly fantastic department, with at last count TEN biological anthropology faculty. (Let that sink in. Awesome, right?) In addition to this tremendous disciplinary breadth, these faculty members are also just plain great people. Kate (with Dr. Rebecca Stumpf) heads the Laboratory for Evolutionary Endocrinology, where she and her students are exploring really fascinating work on inflammation and reproductive function. Kate is producing a thoughtful, engaging, and personable blog that I think will be of interest to BANDIT members. Check it out!
