Next to supporting activities in the core fields of evolutionary
biology, the Kiel Evolution Center aims at promoting interdisciplinary crosstalk among evolutionary biologists and scientists from other disciplines in order to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to current major challenges in medicine, agriculture, and nature conservation.
The foundation symposium is specifically dedicated to the latter aspect, Translational Evolutionary Research. International pioneers of interdisciplinary evolutionary research will join Kiel experts to showcase current developments in evolutionary biology and how such knowledge can be applied to current problems like effective cancer therapy, the antibiotic crisis, the spread of disease in agriculture, or species conservation during global change.
