My manuscript describing previously unexplored transverse micro-anatomy of a Harris line in a human distal tibia has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Metabolism. I identified three key histological features that characterize the line. The article should be out at the beginning of 2015.
I spent this week at the newly established Weizmann Centre for Integrative Archaeology and Anthropology at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. I gave a talk about my recent and most current research entitled "Microscopic perspectives on inferring human lifestyles from bone". The new Centre has state-of-the-art equipment, and I am looking forward to pursuing collaboration with the Weizmann team led by Dr Kornelius Kupczik. .
Two new femoral bone micrographs scanned using an atomic force microscope as part of an on-going collaboration that I established with Dr Wei-Feng Xue from the School of Biosciences at the University of Kent have been acquired by the Wellcome Images for their collection. The Images can be viewed, downloaded, and purchased here.
