COVID-19 UPDATE: Thank you for your interest in TriCEM’s Evolutionary Medicine Summer Institute (EMSI). Due to continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and risks associated with large gatherings, we have made the unfortunate but necessary decision to cancel this year’s EMSI.

If you are looking for an opportunity to stay connected with the global evolutionary medicine community we invite you to engage with our new journal club-style web series called Club EvMed (https://tricem.org/education-and-outreach/club-evmed/).  To stay up to date with news, events, and opportunities through TriCEM please consider joining our email list at https://tricem.org/join-us/.

We look forward to connecting with you virtually now, and in person in the future. Wishing you the best during these unprecedented times.

The TriCEM Team


The goal of EMSI is to introduce core evolutionary concepts to a wide range of topics in human health and disease, including public health, and to train physicians and medical scientists in computational methods used in evolutionary and ecological research.  Evolution is largely absent from medical and public health training, yet is vital to tackling our most urgent health challenges, including emerging infectious diseases, the evolution of microbial resistance, increasing prevalence of autoimmune diseases, the obesity epidemic, threats to food safety, neurodegenerative disease, and cancer.
