Biografie (woord)

Julia Boughner is Assistant Professor in the Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology at the University of Saskatchewan. Her laboratory researches dental and jaw development in great apes, the genetic underpinnings of coordinated jaw and tooth morphogenesis and evolution in mammals, and early–acting risk factors for third molar impaction in humans. 

Campbell Rolian is Assistant Professor in anatomy in the Department of Comparative Biology and Experimental Medicine in the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Calgary. His current work centers around an artificial selection experiment in mice, which will allow him to study developmental, evolutionary and functional aspects of skeletal variation in the vertebrate limb skeleton.
