The 2016 meeting on the International Society of Evolution, Medicine & Public Health took place on June 22-25th in Durham, North Carolina. The meeting brought together scientists, teachers, clinicians, and students in the evolution and medicine community to share ideas and create new connections that will advance the field. This open meeting was designed to bridge the many different disciplines where relevant research takes place, including infectious disease, public health, genetics, anthropology, psychology, oncology, ecology, and veterinary medicine.
The meeting was sponsored by the Triangle Center for Evolutionary Medicine (TriCEM), the Canine Health Foundation, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund, and the Center for Evolution & Medicine at Arizona State University (CEM).
