Dr Wroblewski is interested in the importance of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) in many aspects of biology and evolution. During her PhD at the University of Minnesota she investigated patterns of paternity and the influence of paternal relationships on chimpanzee social behaviour in the population of Gombe National park, Tanzania. She is interested in the direct relationship between MHC genotype and health, particularly as it relates to SIV infections in wild chimpanzees. Since joining the Parham Lab in 2010 she has been characterizing the genetic variation of the MHC in the Gombe chimp population and its relationship to disease susceptibility and reproductive success.
