Prof. Eugenia Cunha has been awarded the renowed T Dale Stewart Award!


We are very happy and proud to announce that our past President and FASE Board member, Prof. Eugenia Cunha, has been awarded the renowed T Dale Stewart Award, the highest award in the field of forensic anthropology offered by the section of Anthropology of the American Academy of Forensic Science for career-long contributions to the field. We are very happy that the outstanding achievements that Prof. Cunha made during her work as a forensic anthropologist have been recognized, and we wish her further success and to continue on the same path!


Our “FASE basic workshop + Symposium 2022” in Heraklion, was a real success thanks to the work of an absolutely great team from the University of Crete!

Thank you to:
– Elena Kranioti, Associate Professor in Forensic Medicine and FASE Board Member
– Despina Flouri, Resident in Forensic Pathology
– Eleni Kontzinou, Resident in Forensic Pathology
– Dimitra Karyda, Researcher in Biology (graduate)
– Sophia Mavroudas, currently postdoc in Crete, Texas State Univ. USA
– Julieta G. Garcia Donas, currently Research Associate in Crete, Lecturer in Forensic Anthropology at the University of Dundee

You will have the opportunity to meet them all during our next “FASE 20th Anniversary Symposium” in Marseille (France).

Ann Ross’ lab would look perfectly normal were it not for the skeletons on the tables.

There are three skeletons laying flat on separate tables. Two are fairly in tact, lined up from head to toe. The third comprises several charred bones, burned after death.

Ross runs the North Carolina Human Identification & Forensics Analysis Laboratory, which contracts with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for forensic anthropological casework statewide. She examines the remains of humans to help determine how they died and, if unknown, who they were. As a professor of biological sciences at NC State, she teaches students how to do the same. 

“This is an active forensics lab,” Ross said. “It’s not your normal research lab.”
