My winning proposal: A centre to shake up forensic science

UK forensic science is in a whirlwind of change. In the midst of this, a call from the Leverhulme Trust for applications to lead a research centre to reinvigorate a discipline was exactly what Sue Black, professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology at the University of Dundee, needed. James Field reports.

For Sue Black, the timing of the announcement in January 2015 by the Leverhulme Trust of a £40-million research centre awards scheme was very serendipitous. Black had been organising exactly the right kind of event at the Royal Society with her frequent collaborator Niamh Nic Daéid, also a professor of forensics at Dundee and director of research at the university’s Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification.

Perfect timing
