Dr. Esteban Parra is one of the senior authors of a recent study describing the results of a genome-wide association study (GWAs) of anthropometric traits (body mass index, height, and BMI-adjusted waist-to-hip ratio) in a large Hispanic/Latino sample, which was recently published in the journal HGG Advances. This research uncovered several novel genetic variants associated with these traits. (Posted May 17, 2022)


Dr. Esteban Parra and his Mexican colleagues participated in a comprehensive study of the genetics of type 2 diabetes (T2D), which included more than 180 thousand affected individuals and 1.1 million controls of diverse ancestry. The results of this large-scale collaborative research were published in the prestigious journal Nature Genetics. This ambitious study identified hundreds of genetic markers increasing T2D risk and showed that the inclusion of samples from diverse populations resulted in enhanced fine-mapping resolution and better transferability of T2D prediction scores across populations. (Posted May 17, 2022)

lipid vesiclesDr. Esteban Parra and his colleagues from Mexico are co-authors of a very large study of the genetics of blood lipid levels including hundreds of scientists throughout the world. The results of this study have been published in the prestigious journal Nature. The sample included approximately 1.65 million individuals, including 350,000 of non-European ancestries. The study identified many novel genetic variants influencing blood lipid levels (LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, total cholesterol, and non-HDL-cholesterol). Importantly, the study highlights the importance of including diverse populations in Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS). The authors of the study reported that increasing diversity resulted in improvement of fine-mapping efforts to identify putative functional variants, and the transferability of lipid concentration predictions using Polygenic Risk Scores (PRS) to multiple population groups. (Posted January 18, 2022)

Dr. Lauren Schroeder and Cathy Ngọc Hân Tran published an article entitled “Common evolutionary patterns in the human nasal region across a worldwide sample” in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology. This article uses a quantitative genetic approach to assess whether the variation in the external nasal region of humans can be attributed to genetic drift or natural selection. Results highlight a strong adaptive signature in the nasal region across all populations, challenging the long-standing hypothesis that nasal adaptation occurred only across cold-climates. (Posted August 23, 2021)


Dr. Madeleine Mant and her team published more results of their U of T COVID-19 Action Initiative funded research on U of T student experiences of the ongoing pandemic in PLOS ONE. While the majority of university students stated their intention to get the COVID-19 vaccine, they noted nuanced concerns about efficacy and safety that must be taken into account by public health authorities. Ensuring that family doctors, pharmacists, and other front-line healthcare workers have consistent and clear information regarding the benefits of vaccination will be critical to encouraging uptake among young adults. (Posted August 18, 2021)

Dr. Rosenberg Larsen published a co-authored article in the journal, Frontiers in Psychology, entitled, "Is the Psychopathic Brain an Artifact of Coding Bias? A Systematic Review". In this piece, the authors systematically review the neurobiological evidence behind the claim that diagnosed psychopaths have abnormal/different brain structures. Specifically, they analyzed the proportion of null-findings compared to positive effects in sMRI brain imaging experiments. They found that the majority of results are null-findings, but that review studies consistently under-report nulls and disproportionately includes positive findings, distorting the robustness and true relevance of this evidence. The authors conclude that there is a pressing problem with coding bias in the field, which in turn has negative implications for its current and future forensic use. (Posted April 26, 2021)


Dr. Madeleine Mant and colleagues published an article entitled Canadian university students' perceptions of COVID-19 severity, susceptibility, and health behaviours during the early pandemic period in the journal Public Health in Practice.

Dr. David Samson, PhD candidates Erica Kilius and Leela McKinnon, and Master's student Noor Abbas published Pandemic Nightmares: COVID-19 Lockdown Associated With Increased Aggression in Female University Students' Dreams in Frontiers in Psychology. The COVID-19 pandemic and its associated stressors have impacted the daily lives and sleeping patterns of many individuals, including university students. Dreams may provide insight into how the mind processes changing realities. We found that relative to normative American College Student (ACS) samples generated pre-COVID-19, women were more likely to experience aggressive interactions in their dream content, including increased physical aggression. Results indicate that university students did experience changes in dream content due to the pandemic lockdown period, with women disproportionally affected. These findings can aid universities in developing support programs for students by bringing forth an understanding of students' concerns and anxieties as they process the “new normal” of social distancing.

This paper proposes a methodology to strengthen understanding of social learning traditions in the Great Lakes that is applicable across spatiotemporal contexts. (Posted March 22, 2021)


an anthropology ofProfessor Andrew Gilbert recently created a podcast entitled “An Anthropology of…” for the Raising Our Voices virtual event series of the American Anthropological Association last November. The podcast was only available for registered participants, but is now available for anyone to listen to here.  Here is a description of the episode:

“Among the most common phrases to appear in anthropological scholarship is “an anthropology of…” But the objects of this phrase differ wildly. A simple search of anthropology journals shows scholars proposing an anthropology of, variously: labor, landmines, culpability, old age, lying, parking, the multimodal, viral hemorrhagic fevers, algorithms, electricity, interior dialogue, immunology, public reasoning, and undesired buildings. With such an array of different research objects can the authors mean the same thing by what constitutes “anthropology”? Or is this turn of phrase simply a useful way to distinguish ourselves in a competitive academic market and add intellectual heft to our scholarly endeavors? Drawing on interviews with a diverse group of anthropologists, this podcast takes this phrase as a starting point to offer a playful and contemplative exploration of how the discipline understands itself today. Featuring Akhil Gupta, Kate Hennessy & Trudi Lynn Smith, Eleana Kim, Carole McGranahan, Tobias Rees and Nick Seaver.” (Posted January 25, 2021)
