Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute

We are excited to announce that the Triangle Center for Evolutionary Medicine (TriCEM) is accepting applications for the 2023 Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute (EMSI). This year, EMSI will be held from the evening of May 21st through 26th at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC.

EMSI provides training in evolutionary medicine, with a focus on computational methods, networking, and advancing research frontiers. We aim to attract a diverse pool of applicants that include students, postdocs, and faculty with biological or social science interests, plus clinicians and other medical, veterinary, and public health practitioners. The goals of EMSI are to:
• Introduce core evolutionary principles relevant to public health and medicine.
• Apply evolutionary perspectives to a wide range of topics, including infectious disease, microbial resistance, cancer, the microbiome, and more.
• Provide training in computational methods used in evolutionary and ecological research.
• Build collaborative networks across the evolutionary sciences, human and veterinary medicine, and public health to fuel new research in evolutionary medicine.

Through lectures, hands-on computational exercises, and team-based learning projects, participants will gain the background and the tools to apply evolutionary biology to questions of medical and veterinary importance.

For more information, please visit the EMSI website here: https://sites.duke.edu/emsi/. To apply, please complete the application by the deadline of Monday, March 27th, 2023: https://redcap.duke.edu/redcap/surveys/?s=PEFP33K8AJKRWY8H.
