Student Awards for Anthropological Anatomy Research at AAPA!

Dr. Alison Doubleday and I are very pleased to announce the American Association of Anatomists Anthropological Anatomy Student Award, to be presented at this year's AAPA meeting.

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 (e.g. histology, pathology, immunohistochemistry, gross dissection, imaging, developmental genetics, etc.) in innovative anthropological research. Presentations will be judged on novelty of the research question and design, use of anatomical methodologies, and presentation style.

Application information can be found here. The deadline to submit your abstract for consideration is MARCH 12. The winner will be announced at the Student Prize Reception on Saturday, April 14, 6-7:30pm, so please attend!

(This award is separate from all other AAPA awards. Even if you have submitted your presentation to the AAPA competition, you may still be considered for the AAA Anthropological Anatomy Student Award!)

P.S. Want to learn about a career as a biological anthropologist in the anatomical sciences? Please attend the Anatomy Education and Career Roundtable on Saturday at 2 pm in the Studio Suite! Please let us know if you are interested in attending!
