The faculty in the Department of Integrative Anatomical Sciences comprise one of the largest groups of evolutionary morphologists in the country, and the PhD in IAS is the only major PhD program in the anatomical sciences on the west coast of the United States. Our collaborative approach to research and teaching ensures that students receive a broad background in anatomical sciences and in-depth training in techniques specific to their dissertation research. Under the guidance of the faculty, students have the opportunity to participate in field work, both nationally and internationally, and have access to world-class resources such as the Keck School of Medicine’s Molecular Imaging Center and the research collections at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, where many of our faculty have institutional affiliations.
