Duration: 1.5 hours
Forensic science research and development plays a key role in the advancement of the practice of forensic science, as noted by the 2009 National Academies of Science report “Strengthening Forensic Sciences in the United States: A Path Forward.”
In this installment of the Emerging Research series, two researchers will present their current research in the medicolegal death investigation (MDI) discipline. Dr. Beatrix Dudzik from Lincoln Memorial University will present on her work about postmortem interval estimation from bone marrow lipids. Dr. Gulnaz Javan will discuss her research that involves linking internal organ microbiomes and metabolome compositions to cause of death in MDI investigations.
Detailed Learning Objectives
- Overview of three NIJ-supported emerging research projects in the MDI discipline and their progress
