Welcome!

Welcome to the official webpage of the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine (IEM). In September 2014 the former Centre for Evolutionary Medicine (ZEM) was upgraded to the new Institute of Evolutionary Medicine (IEM).

The IEM is a leading international and globally connected research, teaching and service institute which is part of the medical faculty at the University of Zurich. Researchers at the IEM analyse ancient biological material and associated data to better understand modern human health issues and diseases. Due to specialist scientific expertise, excellent infrastructure and state-of-the-art methods, researchers at the IEM are able to work on such interdisciplinary research questions as ‘How does the past (for example the evolutionary origins of diseases) inform the present and the future?’ in the context of the field of Evolutionary Medicine.

Find more basic information about the IEM under The Institute, its Vision, the Mission Statement or the Institute Structure.
