Now accepting proposals for evolutionary medicine curriculum development; deadline April 1

NESCent is sponsoring a range of targeted activities in the general area of Evolutionary Medicine. As part of this program, NESCent is seeking to support a Working Group focusing on the development and implementation of model curricula and curriculum materials in Evolutionary Medicine to support teaching of undergraduates, and students in medicine, nursing, public health and medical research. The resources developed should show how evolutionary principles play an important role in understanding health and disease, and ideally, should span a wide breadth of medical disciplines. In particular, proposals that demonstrate international participation and a mix of senior and emerging researchers, including graduate students, are encouraged. Minority participation is also an important consideration in evaluation. For more information please visit
