13th Annual Forensic Science Symposium
Oberkotter Center for Health and Wellness
March 28, 2015
8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
On March 28, 2015 the Forensic Science Student Organization (FSSO) will hold the 13th Annual Forensic Science Symposium.
The event, themed "Falcon Files: The Next Generation," will showcase new technologies in the world of forensic science as well as how they have been applied in modern laboratory casework. These technologies have a large impact on the field itself but especially on the young minds interested in pursuing forensic science as a career since they are the ones who will have an impact on the future of this field.
We are fortunate enough to have seven speakers this year which will each present for 45 minutes. Some of these speakers include a Cedar Crest alumna working in the Sexual and Violent Crimes Unit of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, the CEO of the National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC), a forensic entomologist, and a professor from the University of New Haven speaking about rapid DNA techniques used to combat human trafficking.
Forensic Science Symposium
The annual Forensic Science Symposium at Cedar Crest has been organized and led by our forensic science students-particularly those involved in the Forensic Science Student Organization (FSSO)-since the inaugural event in 2002. The symposium, which is open to anyone with an interest in forensic science, includes presentations by regional and national experts, as well as our forensic science alumnae.
