On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews Donald L. Ewert, a research immunologist/virologist who spent much of his career studying the molecular and cell biology of the immune system, as well as theories about its evolution. Dr. Ewert recently wrote a response at Evolution News & Views to BioLogos’ Dr. Kathryn Applegate. Listen in as Dr. Ewert explains how the immune system works and why it’s not an example of Darwinian evolution at work.

Dr. Ewert received his Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in 1976. As a microbiologist, he operated a research laboratory at the Wistar Institute in Philadelphia for almost twenty years. The Wistar Institute is one of the world’s leading centers for biomedical research. His research, supported by National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, and Department of Agriculture grants, has involved the immune system, viruses, and cellular biology.
