2016: "INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR EVOLUTION, MEDICINE & PUBLIC HEALTH" Travel Award to Rui Diogo to attend International Society for Evolution, Medicine & Public Health meeting 2016 in Durham, NC, June 22-25, 2016.



2016: "FELLOW OF AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ANATOMISTS" Award 2016 to Diogo, named a Fellow of the American Association of Anatomists, a rank designed to "honor distinguished members who have demonstrated excellence in science and in their overall contributions to the anatomical sciences" and who "are considered to be in the top 10% tier of all AAA eligible members".



 2015: "AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ANATOMISTS 2015 INNOVATION AWARD" - To Diogo (PI) and co-PIs Julia Molnar, and Borja Esteve-Altava, of Howard U., in collaboration with  co-PIs Julia Boughner (Uni. Saskatchewan) and Christopher Smith (Mount Sinai), by the planet's leading anatomical association (AAA), for their project "Anatomical Network Analysis", which introduces to AAA and the anatomical community a powerful  new method to quantify musculoskeletal modularity, integration, complexity and evolvability.
