In May 2023 we will be holding our first conference on "New Frontiers in Reconstructing Human Evolution History," featuring the newly minted 2022 Nobel Laureate Svante Pääbo as the Keynote Speaker!  The field is exploding as genomic tools and computational methodology now collide, revealing how migrations, infectious diseases and other historical events shaped human evolution.  The meeting will bring together researchers with expertise in computational biology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, functional genomics, and bioethics to discuss emerging research discoveries in:

  • Computational Approaches for Reconstructing Demographic History
  • Evolution of Complex Traits
  • Early History of Modern Humans
  • Genomic Basis of Human Adaptation
  • Impact of Infectious Disease on Human Evolution
