Anthropology and Human Genetics

Biological anthropology is the study of the diversity of actual and ancient human populations. It tackles the variability of mankind through time (human evolution) and space (contemporary human diversity). The research activities of the laboratory include both approaches: I) Study oh human growth, from baby to young adult, as the indicator of the health of a person and/or of a population. The study of the interactions between human development and environmental factors as well as the setting of standards of human development for medical purposes. II) Study of the paleo-ecology of ancient populations: demography, study and trials in diet reconstitution, paleoanthropology and paleopathology studies on skeletons from archaeological diggings,... Besides the main activities, ad hoc studies on various themes also take place.
