Saskia Ammer, Ph.D. student of Prof. Eugénia Cunha, has been awarded the American Academy of Forensic Sciences Humanitarian and Human Rights Resource Center’s grant supporting the application of contemporary forensic science and forensic medicine principles to global humanitarian and human rights projects requiring special forensic assistance. 

The award is partially supported directly by the AAFS and partly by National Institute of Justice funds. 
The grant will fund Saskia’s Ph.D. research project “Reuniting the Remains of Undocumented Border Crossers with their Families through Isotope Analysis” for which she is currently collecting samples at the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner in Tucson, Arizona (USA), while simultaneously completing an internship.
