An ecological and evolutionary perspective to disease is vital for tackling our most urgent human, animal and plant health challenges, including the emergence and evolution of new infectious agents.
Montpellier's Ecology and Evolution of Disease Network (MEEDiN) is an umbrella structure uniting scientists from different research institutes in Montpellier, a leading site for ecology and evolution research in France and a major hub for health sciences in Europe.
MEEDiN researchers are focused on deciphering the fundamental ecological and evolutionary processes that drive disease in humans, wildlife, domestic animals and plants. We also work on the application of this research in clinical, veterinary and agricultural contexts. We aim to capture a diversity of approaches and model systems and to promote exchanges among disciplines.
