Sažetak
The recent developments through holistic analytic approach in medical and genetic epidemiological anthropology have promoted this discipline into a significant part of contemporary biomedical research. This has been achieved through integration of the knowledge from several biomedical disciplines that lacked traditional aims of medical anthropology and neglected the important roles of social and ecological components in the etiology of diseases and pathologic conditions. The global ecological, migrational, demographic, social, economic and other changes and their effects on regional developments at the population level required a revision of current research topics. International cooperation was enhanced to coordinate research goals and their potential application in resolving practical problems. This had an effect on the research carried out by many scientists from different fields, such us medical anthropologists, psychiatrists, epidemiologists, specialists in human biology, auxology and genetics. Medical anthropology is increasingly characterized by interdisciplinary interaction, with recent efforts linking micro-domains and macro-domains of analysis enabling the study of individual experiences in the context of both local communitiens and globalpolitical and economic dynamics. The results are increasingly presented through different innovative models of studies and analyses.In view of expansion of our abilities in crossdisciplinary collaboration. no means of communication could be more efficient and productive than the physical gathering of scientists. This provides healthy exchange of information of differentsub-disciplines involved in the research topics and contributes to global efforts toeradicate disease and promote health.
