Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification

The Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID), led by the star of the BBC Cold Cases series Professor Sue Black, houses the most experienced staff in the UK in the fields of human identification, forensic anthropology, craniofacial identification and the study of the human body. The latter has a direct link with the work conducted at Orthopaedics  and hence, the excellent facilities and expertise at both IMAR and CAHID have joined forces to unveil the mystery surrounding the effect of growth plate and sustained training in young football players. This research could not have been possible without the collaboration and support from Rangers Football Club, the University of Dundee Institute of Sports and Exercise and the NHS Medical Physics Department.
