Diurnal Testosterone Variation Among Indigenous Shuar Men from Amazonian Ecuador
Theresa Gildner, a PhD candidate in the UO Department of Anthropology, received a 2015 CLLAS Graduate Student Research Award for her research on the Shuar in Ecuador.
- Theresa Gildner, PhD candidate, Department of Anthropology, Abstract: Lifestyle change, hormone levels, and parasitic disease risk among the Shuar in Ecuador—This study examines how hormone levels and economic change influence parasitic infection by comparing rural and urban areas with respect to testosterone profiles and parasite load as part of the Shuar Health and Life History Project. The results will clarify associations between lifestyle change, hormone levels, and parasitic disease risk and will also help target public health strategies and produce knowledge that will be used to help alleviate the physical suffering of participant communities.
