Rui Diogo is a researcher, speaker and writer at Howard University with several published scientific books,[1] whose research (including those of his lab [2]) covers social issues such as racism, sexism, etc., using scientific data from many different fields of science (interdisciplinarity). His studies regarding evolutionary remnants in human babies in the womb has been widely reported.[3][4][5][6][7]

Education[edit]

He obtained his bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Aveiro, Portugal, and later did a PhD in biology at the University of Liege, Belgium, a postdoc at the King's College of London, and then a master's and a Ph.D. at the Department of Anthropology of George Washington University, U.S.A.[8]

Work[edit]

He is an associate professor of anatomy, Department of Anatomy, Howard University College of Medicine (US).[9] He was among the most cited/influential anatomists in 2019.[10]
