The Biological Anthropology Lab Complex at the University of Georgia is directed by Dr. Susan Tanner and Dr. Laurie Reitsema. The research objectives of the lab group focus on biological, nutritional, and biocultural anthropology, with a particular emphasis on the role of environment in shaping biological and biocultural outcomes. The lab complex consists of two labs, the Bioarchaeology and Biochemistry lab and the Health and Human Biology Lab, both housing many resources that are available to departmental faculty, graduate students, and collaborative scholars.
