Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute

Announcing the TriCEM
Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute
We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2019 Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute (EMSI) May 20-24. The goal of EMSI is to introduce core evolutionary concepts to a wide range of topics in human health and disease, including public health, and to train physicians and medical scientists in computational methods used in evolutionary and ecological research.

EMSI will bring together internationally recognized experts in evolutionary biology with students and health practitioners who want to apply these perspectives to cancer, infectious disease, evolution of microbial resistance, neurology, autoimmune disease, the microbiome, and more. Lectures on key concepts will be complimented with hands-on computational exercises. Our goal is to give participants the background on evolutionary principles and the tools to apply evolutionary biology to questions of medical importance. For more information and the application form, please visit our EMSI website.

This year, EMSI will be held at North Carolina State University.

To apply, and for more information, please fill out this form.
