Have you applied to attend this year’s Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute yet? We’re now accepting applications for the 2021 EMSI, to be held virtually May 24th through 28th.
EMSI provides computational training in evolutionary biology 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.
