Conference Venue is the Biodesign Institute Auditorium
The auditorium is located in Building B
727 E Tyler Street, Tempe, Arizona

The SMBE Satellite Symposium on Phylomedicine will be hosted within
the Biodesign Insitute at Arizona State University.

Phylomedicine is emerging as an important discipline at the intersection of Molecular Evolution and Genomic Medicine. It focuses on the understanding of human disease and health through the application of long-term molecular evolutionary history.

The Center for Evolutionary Medicine & Informatics (CEMI) and the Society for Molecular Biology & Evolution (SMBE) are excited to bring together researchers in Molecular Evolution and Genomic Medicine to advance the field of Phylomedicine in a 2-day symposium (Friday, March 23rd and Saturday March 24th). It will be held in Tempe, Arizona, at the Arizona State University campus.

We have confirmed many exciting speakers who will present their current research and participate in discussions. See the Speakers tab for more information.

Many competitive travel grants will be awarded to selected early career scientists with interest in Phylomedicine (students, postdoctoral lecturers, and assistant professors). See the Grants tab on this website for details on how to apply or to nominate a person.

The Tempe campus of Arizona State University is the largest campus in the United States. Tempe's weather in March is sunny and pleasant. More information on Arizona can be found in the Arizona tab.

A block of rooms has been reserved at a nearby hotel, the Four Points Sheraton, which is within walking distance (5-10 minutes) of the campus location for the conference (Biodesign Institute). Other hotels are available along the light rail, which stops on campus by the Biodesign Institute (1 minute walk). See the Hotels tab for more information.
