Welcome to the Richtsmeier Laboratory at the Pennsylvania State University.

Our research focuses on the quantitative assessment of morphological change in biological organisms, especially the craniofacial complex, through ontogenetic and evolutionary time; determination of the developmental basis of differences in morphology; determination of the evolutionary (genetic) basis of these developmental patterns.
