American Association of Anatomists Anthropological Anatomy Award

by Ed Hagen last modified Feb 08, 2012 07:25 PM
The anatomical sciences and biological anthropology have a deeply entwined history, and new methodological and theoretical advances in both fields ensure an exciting future. To recognize and encourage the incorporation of the anatomical sciences into cutting edge biological anthropology research, the American Association of Anatomists has provided funding for student awards at the American Association of Physical Anthropologists annual meeting in Portland. Two students will be awarded $250 each, for the poster and podium presentations that are judged to best implement either traditional or state-of-the-art anatomical methodologies in innovative anthropological research. Presentations will be judged on novelty of the research question and design, use of anatomical methodologies, and presentation style.

\To apply, please email your AAPA abstract Dr. Alison Doubleday (adouble@uic.edu) no later than March 12, 2012. Indicate whether this is a poster or podium presentation and the DATE and TIME of the presentation. The winner will be announced at the Student Prize Reception on Saturday, April 14, 6-7:30pm, so please attend!
