About the Author

​Steven A. Frank is Donald Bren Professor of Biological Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. Professor Frank develops theory on the evolutionary design of organisms and the failure of those designs in disease. His works include three monographs published by Princeton University Press: Dynamics of Cancer, Immunology and Evolution of Infectious Disease, and Foundations of Social Evolution. He has also published a series of seven articles on the advanced theory of natural selection, along with approximately another 150 peer-reviewed journal articles. His interest in engineering arises from studying the similarities and differences between human-engineered machines and naturally evolved organisms, a contrast that clarifies many aspects of design tradeoffs at the core of both engineering and biology. Professor Frank has received widespread recognition for his research, including election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Theodosius Dobzhansky Prize awarded by the Society for the Study of Evolution.
