The New York Consortium in Evolutionary Primatology
Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM), one of the foremost medical schools and medical centers in the world, is home to many leading laboratories and state-of-the-art facilities in anatomical, neuroanatomical, morphological, radiological, osteological, and genomic sciences. NYCEP students often have opportunities to take courses at the medical school and subsequently to serve as teaching assistants. NYCEP students who have been based in laboratories at MSSM or have taught there have gone on to distinguished careers in anatomy, physical anthropology and biomedical sciences and education. NYCEP faculty and students are based in the Center for Anatomy and Functional Morphology and the Department of Orthopaedics.
