Join us and explore this topic with Dr. Myriam Nafte.
The fast-paced field of forensics has no difficulty keeping up with increasingly sophisticated crimes. In this lecture, we explore the most up-to-date technology used to process an array of death scenes and physical evidence alongside the detailed process of analyzing human remains. While understanding the methods and techniques used by specialists tasked with criminal investigations, we’ll learn all about what went on behind the scenes of some of the highest-profile cases.
