Elga Mark-Kurik is continues her research on the Devonian fishes, particularly on placoderms (arthrodires, antiarchs etc) and psammosteid heterostracans, their taxonomy, morphology,  ontogeny, relationships, evolution, distribution and range, and on the Devonian biostratigraphy. Histological study of injuries and their healing in fossil fishes will continue in cooperation with English colleagues Z. Johanson (Natural History Museum, London), M. M. Smith (King's College, Dental Institute London) & C. Howard (Omer, Israel). E. M.-K. also continues making scientific life-size 3D fossil fish reconstructions and their exposition.
