Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $293,924)

This proposal will establish a database of digital radiographs and demographic data from modern American subadults. By more easily determining the age of death, forensic odontologists and anthropologists will be able to identify human remains more efficiently and accurately. This will reduce the case backlog of unidentified human remains.
