Forensic and Bioanthropology Laboratory Group

Welcome to the Forensic and Bioanthropology Laboratory (FAB Lab) Group’s website! The FAB Lab Group is comprised of a BU Graduate Medical Sciences faculty member/forensic anthropologist, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates who are broadly interested in forensic and biological anthropology research areas. As such, our research includes but is not limited to: human skeletal biology and population history; biological profile method development and refinement; human identification; skeletal health and disease; and bioarchaeology. Please check back regularly for new information, updates, research results, and achievements!

Diversity and Inclusion

Dr. Tallman is actively engaged in diversity an inclusion initiatives in forensic anthropology through his role as a Co-Chair (with Dr. Cate Bird) of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee in the Anthropology Section of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS). The D&I Committee is the first of its kind in the AAFS and is presently comprised of 10 volunteer members (students and professionals) employed in various sectors in forensic anthropology. The Committee strives to increase diversity in the discipline through addressing issues related to inclusion, recruitment, and retention. As such, the Committee tracks membership demographics; leads student and professional discussion forums at the annual AAFS meetings; oversees specialized subcommittees on topics related to diversity and inclusion; manages the Anthropology Section D&I  Mentorship Program; organizes symposia; provides a monetary award to an undergraduate or graduate student from an historically underrepresented community to attend the annual AAFS meeting trough the D&I Travel Award; and fosters a community of inclusion. Please follow the Anthropology Section’s D&I Committee on Facebook here! Additionally, Dr. Tallman was recently appointed as Chair of the AAFS Diversity Outreach Committee.
