Event Description:
Recipients of the Rohlf Medal are recognized for excellence in their body of work on the development of new morphometric methods or for their applications in the biomedical sciences, including evolutionary biology, population biology, physical anthropology, and medicine.

The 2015 recipient is Benedikt Hallgrímsson, Professor of Cell Biology and Anatomy at the University of Calgary's Alberta Children's Hospital Research Institute and the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health. He is a biological anthropologist and evolutionary biologist who combines developmental genetics and bioinformatics with 3D imaging and morphometrics to address the developmental basis as well as evolutionary significance of phenotypic variation and variability. His work has focused on the mammalian craniofacial complex, craniofacial dysmorphology in humans, and skeletal biology and disease and has employed both experimental and comparative approaches. His lecture Morphometrics and the Middle-Out Approach to Complex Traits is part of the Provost's Lecture Series.
