Maastricht University and Avans University of Applied Sciences awarded €250,000 for forensic study of hair

Researchers at Maastricht University (UM) and Avans University of Applied Sciences are developing a method that enables person profiling on the basis of hair. These data can play an important role in forensic research. The Netherlands Forensic Institute and the National Forensic Investigation Team of the Dutch police also participate in this research project. They will be using the new method. The universities will receive €250,000 in funding from the Dutch Taskforce for Applied Research for a 2-year project entitled SherLOK.
