Paleopathology is the study of ancient diseases in humans and animals. The Paleopathology Association was formed in 1973 by U.S. and Canadian scientists. Today, the PPA is a global community composed of researchers and students with backgrounds in physical anthropology, archaeology, medicine, biology, and zoology. Membership is open to all who are interested and dedicated to sharing information, ideas and resources that help us understand health and disease in the past.
Call for Poster Symposia
Proposals are now sought for poster symposia for presentation at the next North American meeting of the PPA (April 18-19, 2017) in
International Journal of Paleopathology
We accept submissions of major research articles, case-studies of impact, brief communications, and technical notes, along with Special Issues which reflect key themes within paleopathology.
