• Who We Are

    Northeastern Evolutionary Primatologists

    The Northeastern Evolutionary Primatology group (NEEP) is a group of people based throughout the northeastern United States whose research focuses on primate (human and nonhuman) evolution, ecology, and behavior. The primary goal of NEEP is to organize annual meetings to discuss ongoing research, and to provide students with professional networking opportunities and a supportive environment to hone their presentation skills. Meetings typically last 1-2 days, and are self-organized to keep costs low. The first and founding meeting was held in October 2014 at Rutgers University.
