Biochemistry senior, Jullie Thieu, is a student in our BS/MFS Biochemistry/Forensic Science Program. She spent time this summer completing her Capstone Internship at the Baltimore City Police Headquarters. Jullie rotated through various units there, including Crime Scene, DNA Analysis, Firearms, and Latent Prints. She loved every part of her internship. In her own words: “My favorite rotation was probably either the DNA Analysis Unit or the Crime Scene Unit . DNA analysis is a hands-on type of lab that I’m already used to and the Crime Scene Unit is full of unexpected situations: You don’t know what type of crime scene you’re going to encounter! I also enjoy working in the Latent Print Unit because working/analyzing latent prints is like the game iSpy.”
Jullie couldn’t have gotten a better internship for her future career as a Forensic Scientist!
