Hard Tissue Biology Laboratory

The hard tissue biology lab is dedicated to understanding the significance of bone and tooth microanatomy and development for revealing aspects of the life history, behavior and environments of primates and other organisms.

We approach this problem through a program of interdisciplinary and collaborative research based both in the laboratory and in the field.  This effort incorporates studies of bone and dental tissues across a range of species, and focused examinations of hard tissue remains and observational studies of living primates from well documented wild populations.
