The Laboratory for Human Craniofacial and Skeletal Identification (HuCS-ID Lab) is a forensic bioanthropology laboratory.

The laboratory draws on diverse skills in human anatomy, quantitative shape-analysis, statistical computing, photography, robotics and medical imaging to improve and quantify human identification methods intrinsic to physical anthropology. The laboratory is intensely research active.

The HuCS-ID Lab operates several online and open-access forensic anthropology data repositories and will soon provide training to a select number of high-achieving UQ postgraduate students.
