On Oct. 6, 2018, the Integrative Anatomy group in the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences hosted the 2018 Midwest Regional Meeting of the Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology.
The meeting brought together faculty, postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate researchers to the University of Missouri from the surrounding region of Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri.
A welcome reception the evening before and introduction from Casey Holliday, PhD, Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences, was hosted by the Integrative Anatomy group.
The Saturday session consisted of five-minute "Lightning Talks" interspersed with longer keynote talks. Keynote speakers included Manuel Leal, PhD, MU Division of Biology; Haley O'Brien, PhD, Oklahoma State University; Jason Bourke, PhD, New York Institute of Technology Jonesboro; and Kevin Middleton, PhD, MU Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences.
The meeting concluded that evening with a plenary lecture by Callum Ross, PhD, University of Chicago, which was open to the public. Talks were held in the Weldon Webb Classroom of the Patient-Centered Care Learning Center. An associated poster session was held in the adjacent PCCLC atrium.
Support for this event was provided by the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences, the MU School of Medicine, the Division of Biological Sciences, and SICB's Divisions of Vertebrate Morphology and Comparative Biomechanics.
