The mission of the International Society for Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health is to foster communication among scientists, students, clinicians and public health professionals who want to use evolutionary insights to improve medical research and practice, and to use studies of human health and disease to advance evolutionary biology. To accomplish this mission ISEMPH sponsors annual meetings, the journal Evolution, Medicine, & Public Health, The Evolution and Medicine Review, and EvMedEd. Join ISEMPH to help us discover new ways that evolutionary biology can improve human health.

Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health is an open access Oxford University Press journal that publishes original, rigorous applications of evolutionary thought to issues in medicine and public health. It aims to connect evolutionary biology with the health sciences to produce insights that may reduce suffering and save lives. In addition to research and review articles it publishes very short overviews of clinical topics and core principles of evolutionary medicine. Charles Nunn is the Editor. He welcomes email notes about possible article.
