Workshop: 2018 Annual North American Meeting of Paleopathology Association

Parasitology in Paleopathology – New Perspectives Using Large Data Bases

Date: 8:30 am - 11:00 am, April 10 (Tuesday), 2018 

Organizers: Dong Hoon Shin,1 Morgana Camacho,2 Johnica Morrow,3 Karl Reinhard3

1 Seoul National University College of Medicine, South Korea

2 Fundação Oswaldo Cruz, Brazil
3 University of Nebraska – Lincoln, USA

The goal of this workshop is the demonstration of insights that can be gained from analysis of large data sets.  These data sets, ranging from 100 to 1,000 samples, can provide epidemiological insights into transmission and pathology caused by parasites.  Large data sets also provide insights into zoonotic transmission.  Most importantly, focused studies can also connect parasitological infections with bone pathology. The core presentations are listed below:  

1) Dong Hoon Shin - - Dialogue between Paleoparasitology and History: the Scientific Data interpreted through Studies of Historical Documents 

2) Sergey Slepchenko - Parasitology and pathoecology in Russia: Investigations and Perspectives
3) Piers Mitchell – Creating Large Data Sets from the Published Literature on Ancient Parasites to Understand Disease in Past Civilizations
4) Morgana Camacho -  The interplay between diet, lifestyle and parasitism in provoking parasitic disease
5) Johnica Morrow - Prehistoric morbidity and pathology defined by human-dog associations
6) Sebastian Botero, Ruth Grady, Brie Haberyan, Chase Horn – Stratigraphic probes and large-scale discovery of emergence and control of infection
7) Karl Reinhard – The contribution of mummy studies to defining parasite patterns
