The SOS poster session met in the Manning Academic Center yesterday. We had a great turn out and seniors were able to present on their capstone experiences. These presentations are a clumination of over 120 internship hours and the completion of their Capstone Seminar Course.  Congratulations to all the student presenters on a job well done!

Footwear Impression

       Footwear Impression 2

Survey of  Forensic Science is the first course that introduces students to a career in forensic sciences. The course covers lots of topics, including crime scene investigation, trace evidence analysis, fingerprints, forensic chemistry (drugs and toxicology) and biology (serology and DNA), bloodstain pattern analysis and arson and explosives. Students in Professor Carter's Forensic Science 101 course this week were exploring footwear impressions during class last week, an important piece of evidence at a crime scene. 

                    Dr. Hugh Hayes

Chemistry alum (BS'10/MS'11) and Forensic Science adjunct faculty member Dr. Hugh Hayes recently wrapped up a NIST Special Publication which details all the work that went into developing a multivitamin Standard Reference Material. The publication is far reaching, as it will be cited anytime someone uses the reference material for research in clinical trials and method development/validation for product testing. Dr. Hayes is a Research Chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and has been the technical project lead on this project for the past two years. Congratulations Dr. Hayes!
