About the 2020 Annual Meeting
The Sixth Annual Meeting of the International Society for Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health will be in Athens, Georgia, from July 15-18, 2020. ISEMPH 2020 will gather delegates from around the world. It follows in the footsteps of successful previous meetings in Tempe, Arizona; Durham, North Carolina; Groningen, The Netherlands; Park City, Utah; and Zurich, Switzerland. ISEMPH 2020 is profoundly interdisciplinary and emphasizes the multiple interfaces between evolutionary biology and human health in the complementary fields of medicine, evolutionary biology, anthropology, evolutionary psychology, behavioral ecology and epidemiology. The meetings welcome students and clinicians at all stages of professional development.
The 2020 program will include plenary sessions led by some of the world’s leading evolutionary medicine experts including:
Kevin Keel, DVM, PhD, Associate Professor of Pathology, Microbiology & Immunology at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
Sudhir Kumar, PhD, the Laurel H. Carnell Professor and Director of the Institute of Genomics and Evolutionary Medicine at Temple University, who will speak on how “Evolution Informs Genomic Medicine.”
Paul Turner, PhD, the Rachel Carson Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University School of Medicine, who will speak about “Leveraging Evolutionary Trade-Offs and Phage Selection Pressure to Reduce Bacterial Pathogenicity.”
The International Society for Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health fosters communication among scientists, students, clinicians, and public health professionals who use evolutionary insights to improve medical research and practice, and information on human health and disease to advance evolutionary biology. ISEMPH sponsors annual meetings, the journal Evolution, Medicine, & Public Health, The Evolution and Medicine Review, and EvMedEd.
