In October of 2015, The Center for Evolution and Medicine launched the CEM Venture Fund. This was an opportunity for all ASU, Mayo faculty and students to take part in and submit a proposal for further funding of a research project. The Center accepted evolutionary medicine project proposals in the forms of travel grants, graduate fellowships, research support, workshops and education resource development. The goal of the CEM Venture Fund is to connect evolutionary biology and topics relevant to medicine or public health.
