Welcome to STAFS

The Southeast Texas Applied Forensic Science Facility is a research facility with a predominant focus on the study of applications of forensic sciences to the human body. The knowledge developed here can be used by professionals in the field to help solve criminal cases and to develop the skills of future crime scene investigators.

Each body donated to STAFS is unique, and a very valuable component of our research. We could not conduct the research we do without the donations individuals and families make to our facility.
