Middleton Lab

Integrative Anatomy

University of Missouri

The lab is part of the Integrative Anatomy group in the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at the University of Missouri School of Medicine.

Our research focuses on vertebrate musculoskeletal physiology, form, and function in the contexts of animal locomotion and evolution. We integrate studies across multiple scales from micro-scale structural materials of bone to macro-scale whole bone morphology to evolutionary changes across vertebrate taxa and with comparisons to extinct organisms.
