Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar is distinguished paleoanthropologist
A paleoanthropologist, Bromage, Ph.D., is director of the Hard Tissue Research Unit. His research focuses on human evolution and growth and development, with emphasis on the biology of bones and teeth as windows into life history. Bromage conducts fieldwork principally in Malawi, where he examines both modern and early human dental and skeletal development to draw inferences concerning relationships between human biology and the environment. He has recently discovered a new biological clock while observing incremental growth lines in tooth enamel, hypothesized to regulate many metabolic functions.
Bromage is the coeditor of “African Biogeography: Climate Change and Early Hominid Evolution” and has been honored for his research by the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic Society. In 2010 he was the recipient of the Max Planck Prize in recognition of his achievements in the research on the microanatomical structure of ancestral human teeth and bones.
