'We are the primary drivers of change. We will directly and indirectly determine what lives, what dies, where and when. We are in a different phase of evolution; the future of life is now in our hands.'
Why are rates of conditions like autism, asthma, obesity and allergies exploding at an unprecedented pace? Why are humans living longer, getting smarter and having far fewer children? If Darwin were alive today, how would he explain this new world? Could our children eventually become a different species – or several?
In Evolving Ourselves, futurist Juan Enriquez and scientist Steve Gullans take us on a sweeping tour of how humans are changing the course of evolution – sometimes intentionally, sometimes not.
Steve Gullans was a professor at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital for 18 years, applying breakthrough technologies to the understanding of diseases such as cancer, ALS, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and has published more than 130 scientific papers in journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, Nature, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. He is the co-founder with Juan Enriquez of Excel Venture Management and Managing Director, working with entrepreneurs to develop new technologies for medicine, energy, agriculture, and social networking.
