Faculty members in the chemical and physical sciences department are recognized leaders in their fields, and it shows in their professional affiliations. It also benefits the students who are interested in chemistry, biochemistry, and forensic science. These affiliations begin “at the top,” including:
The American Chemical Society
Pamela D. Kistler, Ph.D., Jeanne R. Berk, Ph.D., and Lindsey A. Welch, Ph.D., help shape policy for the Lehigh Valley chapter of the American Chemical Society. Our students regularly attend meetings of this group in order to network with professionals and learn more about the latest developments in the chemical and physical sciences.
The American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) & Northeastern Association of Forensic Scientists (NEAFS)
Lawrence Quarino, Ph.D., who is director of Cedar Crest’s forensic science program, is also the President-Elect of the Northeastern Association of Forensic Scientists (NEAFS) and former chair the Forensic Science Educational Programs Accreditation Commission (FEPAC) of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. (FEPAC is the main accrediting organization in the field of forensic science.) Students regularly attend and present research at events conducted by both the Northeastern Association of Forensic Scientists and the American Academy of Forensic Science.
