to the web site of the Center for Functional Anatomy
and Evolution at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
The primary research focus of the Center is the exploration of
relationships among the functional anatomy, behavior, and evolutionary
biology of extant and extinct vertebrates. The Center provides an exceptional opportunity for graduate
students to study and conduct original research in evolutionary organismal
biology (see the Program page). Training in the teaching of human anatomy is also an important
part of our program. Fieldwork opportunities in Costa Rica and Wyoming
are available (see individual faculty pages for more information on these).
The department also houses a large collection of fossil
vertebrates and various research facilities (see the Resources page for more details).
Our Center is responsible for the delivery of the School of Medicine Anatomy course as part of the MD program. Additionally, we offer a Summer Institute in Anatomy for other students both inside and outside the Johns Hopkins Community.
More information on the
graduate program, specific faculty interests, and resources is available
through the links on this and other pages.
