Discover.com highlights a mathematical model developed by Aviv Bergman, Ph.D., and Arturo Casadevall, M.D., Ph.D., to support Dr. Casadevall's theory that warm-blooded mammals evolved to defend against fungal infections. The model shows that the optimum body temperature for organisms to ward off fungal infections without burning too much energy is in the 98-degree Fahrenheit range. Dr. Bergman is professor and founding chair of systems and computational biology. Dr. Casadevall is professor of microbiology & immunology and the Leo and Julia Forchheimer Chair in Microbiology and Immunology. (Wednesday, December 29, 2010)
