What is TREE?

TREE aims to bring together researchers from all stages and institutional affiliations to share and discuss research in evolutionary biology. We especially encourage graduate and undergraduate students to keep this meeting in mind throughout their summer studies as an opportunity to present their research to colleagues in a professional setting.

This year's keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Lacey Knowles, University of Michigan, Robert B. Payne Collegiate Professor and Curator, Museum of Zoology, and will be open to the public.

Abstract submission and registration are now closed; however, we may accept additional registrants if spaces are available. Contact us to inquire about registering for TREE 2018.

We are excited to announce that due to TREE's generous sponsorship by the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution (SMBE), we are able to offer a limited number of travel awards for this year's event! More information can be found here.

Thank you for making the first annual TREE an inspiring success!

Over 168 attendees from 38 different institutions joined us at the University of Pittsburgh to participate in TREE 2017! We expect our community to grow even larger in 2018!

There is no registration fee for TREE.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided free of charge.
