Welcome to the Seventh Annual Meeting of the International Society for Evolution, Medicine, and Public Health to be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on 5-8 July 2022
Evolutionary Medicine is an integrative area bringing evolutionary biologists and medical scientists together to facilitate the application of concepts and approaches from evolutionary biology to medical research and medical practice. This field is growing rapidly and its relevance to society and medicine has been made all the more obvious with the recent pandemic.
ISEMPH 2022 welcomes researchers, clinicians, public health professionals, and students at all levels as well as anyone interested in this integrative view of evolutionary biology and medicine. The meeting will gather delegates from around the world. For many of us this will be the first opportunity in two years to reconnect, and to consolidate new and ongoing collaborations, while promoting important cross-talk among all disciplines that influence the field of Evolutionary Medicine.
Continuing Medical Education Credits (CME)
We are applying for continuing medical education credits (CME) from the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). These CME are recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA). Interest in CME can be indicated on the congress registration form.

Zoobiquity Conferences explore the phylogenetic origins of health and illness by promoting interdisciplinarycollaborations between human, animal and environmental health professionals. Hosted by the Portuguese Medical Association and Portuguese Veterinary Medical Association, this year's conference has the theme of Female Health Across the Tree of Life and is dedicated to investigating the unique disease resistance of some females and the shared biological vulnerabilities of female animals. Women’s health challenges to be explored include ovarian and breast cancer, osteoporosis, pre-eclampsia, reproductive senescence and infertility.
July 2 - 5, 2022 - Lisbon, Portugal
This four-day workshop is an opportunity for early career researchers to join field leaders in evolutionary medicine and public health (EMPH) and in the philosophy of biology and medicine for a series of intensive discussions. Rather than simply teaching the state of the field, the aim is to progress key issues in the foundations of evolutionary medicine and to encourage researchers in the philosophy of science and medicine to engage more closely with the field of EMPH.
12 subsidized positions are available for early career researchers
For more information and to register, please see the program listing.
The conference will be held at the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (FCG, in the Portuguese acronym) in Lisbon. FCG is a pleasant, iconic, and easily accessible place in the center of Lisbon, with ample indoor and outdoor spaces.
