Very excited to announce that the Pierce lab has activated its second NSF grant! The project is a collaborative effort with Ken Angielczyk at the Field Museum and aims to reconstruct forelimb evolution in Synapsida.
We will be traveling the world collecting fossil data and performing cool lab-intensive experiments. The research will also include working with Andy Biewener (Harvard; biomechancis), Zhe-Xi Luo (Chicago; early mammals), and Graham Slater (Chicago; phylogenetics).
Let the fun begin!
