Anthropology honors for CU-Boulder associate professor

By Staff

Michelle Sauther, an associate professor at CU-Boulder, and Frank Cuozzo of the University of North Dakota recently won the award for best poster presentation at the 15th International Symposium on Dental Morphology in Newcastle Upon Tyne, U.K.

This triennial conference, held since 1965, brought together anthropologists, paleontologists and other dental researchers from 17 countries.

Their poster, titled “Toothcomb function and use in wild ring-tailed lemurs: Implications for the evolution of the prosimian toothcomb,” was based on their long-term research in Madagascar. It explored the impacts that wear and damage to this unique primate trait have on lemur health and biology. The award included a prize of 200 British Pounds.
