Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute

The Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute (EMSI) connects internationally recognized experts in evolutionary biology with students and health practitioners who want to apply these perspectives to cancer, infectious disease, the evolution of microbial resistance, neurology, autoimmune disease, the microbiome, and more.

Join EMSI in May to learn about core evolutionary perspectives on a wide range of topics in human and animal health and disease, computational methods used in evolutionary and ecological research, and recent collaborations across the evolutionary sciences, human and veterinary medicine, and public health. To achieve these goals, EMSI utilizes a model of hands-on participatory learning coupled with networking and collaborative projects. This model also includes lectures and exercises designed to instill an understanding of core concepts, followed by hands-on training in computational methods, including introductions to evolutionary analysis tools.

More Information

Scholarship funds are available for applicants who are underrepresented in STEM, teach at minority-serving institutions, or have significant financial constraints that would limit their participation. Scholarship details can be found on the EMSI application.
