Dr. Young is an evolutionary biologist with a background in biological anthropology, anatomy and embryology, and developmental biology. Using both classical comparative and modern experimental approaches, Dr. Young’s research focuses on the development of the limbs and shoulder, and particularly how the process of morphogenesis has impacted the evolution of uniquely human adaptations like bipedalism and throwing.

 

Orthopaedic Trauma Institute (OTI)

The Orthopaedic Trauma Institute (OTI) is a collaboration between the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG). The OTI is the only trauma center in San Francisco specializing in the treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries. Regardless of where you live or which health insurance policy you carry, if you suffer a life- or limb-threatening injury in San Francisco, the ambulance will bring you to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. Once there, you’ll find our team of UCSF Orthopaedic Department surgeons, specially trained to mend complex fractures all over the body.
