NYCEP is a graduate training consortium in physical anthropology that unites the resources of the American Museum of Natural History, the City University of New York, Columbia University, the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York University, and the Wildlife Conservation Society. We also collaborate with Rutgers University, the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and the University of Tuebingen. Our diverse faculty, current students, and successful alumni pursue research in morphology, paleontology, systematics, population genetics, primate behavior, ecology, and conservation in our numerous laboratories and at field sites around the world.
