Join us for a special Club EvMed where we’ll be highlighting some of the exciting graduate student research in the field of evolutionary medicine. We will hear 12-minute research talks from Lafi Aldakak, Chenlu Di, and Iman Hamid (see talk titles below and abstracts at clubevmed.org). There will be a brief Q&A period at the end of each talk, plus breakout rooms after all 3 talks to allow for more in depth conversations with the speakers.
