We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2022 Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute (EMSI), to be held May 15th through 20th at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC*.
EMSI provides training in evolutionary medicine to students, postdocs, and faculty from diverse fields, plus clinicians and other medical, veterinary, and public health practitioners. The goals of EMSI are to:
- Introduce core evolutionary principles
- 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
- Foster new collaborations across the evolutionary sciences, human and veterinary medicine, and public health
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.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Meredith Spence Beaulieu.
*Note: We are currently planning for in-person, but virtual options are a possibility given the uncertainty around the ongoing pandemic. We encourage you to apply if you would be interested in attending in-person OR virtually! There is a question on the application to gauge your comfort/interest with these options.
