    Alexandra Zachwieja, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth Campus, co-authored an article in Nature Communications by Demeter et al. entitled "A Middle Pleistocene Denisovan molar from the Annamite Chain of northern Laos" in which the research team described the discovery of a ~164-131,000-year-old molar from Tam Ngu Hao 2 (Cobra Cave), belonging to a young girl that shares morphological affinities with other Denisovan specimens from the Tibetan Plateau. The molar represents the first discovery of a Denisovan in a tropical environment, suggesting that this hominin could broadly adapt to different environmental conditions, a trait modern humans share.
