The Evolution & Medicine Review

The ISEMPH 2022 program is now final and online, thanks to Program Chairs Michael Hochberg and Alejandra Nuñez De La Mora and the Program Committee.  Discounted early registration expires on Sunday May 15, but the discount will still be available on May 16 to avoid confusion from time zone vagaries.

With 80 talks, including 8 distinguished plenary speakers, 60 posters, and a variety of social events, this will be the best evolutionary medicine meeting yet. Please also note events on July 5, including the welcome reception at 17:30.
All are welcome, from students to advanced researchers.

VENUE
The conference will be held at the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (FCG, in the Portuguese acronym) in Lisbon. FCG is a pleasant, iconic, and easily accessible place in the center of Lisbon, with ample indoor and outdoor spaces. Around the FCG, there are many options for accommodation and food, covering a wide range of prices and styles, suitable for all.
