Lawrence Fatica the evolution of the primate skeleton with particular emphasis on the influences of ecology, phylogenetic relationships, and ontogeny on morphological diversity in closely related species. Presently, his research focuses on the genus Gorilla. In addition, he is interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning as it pertains to scientific and medical education.
