Grady Early Forensic Anthropology Laboratory

The Grady Early Forensic Anthropology Laboratory (GEFARL) is located at 1727 Ranch Road 12 in San Marcos. The laboratory is named for Dr. Grady Early. He has been a strong supporter of the FACTS mission, both financially and in spirit, for many years. The GEFARL houses the Texas State University Donated Skeletal Collection (TXSTDSC), and is equipped with a photography studio, GIS station for mapping applications, microscopy and histology equipment for thin sectioning teeth and bones, geometric morphometric instruments, and other metric and nonmetric osteological equipment for conducting research and training. In 2014 a micro-CT scanner will also be availble for researchers. Osteological research, consulting, and cultural resource assessment are also conducted at the GEFARL.
