The National Institute of Justice has awarded Drs. Cris Hughes and Chelsey Juarez a grant  funding FADAMA.  The Forensic Anthropology Database for Assessing Methods Accuracy (FADAMA), is a database tool for tracking forensic anthropological method use, outcome, and accuracy in the actual casework context. The database will address the persistent lack of adequate measures for assessing accuracy and reliability of forensic anthropology methods applied to forensic casework, and  allow forensic anthropologists to  conduct research on methods trends. Active forensic anthropologists can anonymously upload their cases to the database using this link
