Being the curator of The Schreiner Collection (the anthropological collection at the Department of Anatomy), the scientific research concentrates on skeletal analyses and identification, which include a close interdisciplinary collaboration with archaeologists, anthropologists, forensic specialists and the police.

About the group

The Schreiner Collection is coordinated by Professor Trygve Leergaard. The laboratory was previously coordinated by Professor emeritus Per Holck. Current work includes bone analyses (mainly aDNA, isotopic analyses and age estimation methods) and occasional identification work for the police.
