The AAA-AAPA Anatomy in Anthropology prizes are co-sponsored by the American Association of Anatomists and the AAPA and given yearly subject to co-funding from AAA and honor the poster and podium presentations that are judged to best implement either traditional or state-of-the-art anatomical methodologies (e.g., histology, pathology, immunohistochemistry, gross dissection, imaging, developmental genetics, etc.) in innovative anthropological research. Research may be on past and living humans and nonhuman primates, or other animal models as long as the context is anthropological.
