Evolutionary Medicine Conference: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Human Health and Disease

July 30 – August 1, 2015
Institute of Evolutionary Medicine (IEM)
University of Zurich, Switzerland

This international conference will bring together distinguished keynote speakers as well as experts from different research areas (including medicine, anthropology, molecular/evolutionary biology, paleopathology, archaeology, epidemiology, and other fields) to debate the evolutionary origins of diseases and on how the knowledge of the past informs the present and the future. Furthermore, the specific implications of interdisciplinary research in the understanding and management of human health issues will be addressed.

All abstracts for mini-symposia, oral and poster presentations will be reviewed by a scientific committee and – when accepted – published in the Journal of Evolutionary Medicine. The best student abstract will be awarded a prize by the scientific committee. Students can also apply for a competitive travel grant.

 

This is the sister meeting to the recent meeting of the International Society for Evolution, Medicine and Public Health at Arizona State University’s Center for Evolution and Medicine
