Loyola to host the Maryland Student Forensic Conference, "Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders in Forensic Science," aimed towards high school and undergraduate students with a desire to learn more about careers in forensics and other opportunities in the growing field of forensic science and forensic studies. Several forensic professionals and law enforcement agencies will be on-hand to perform demonstrations and hands-on activities in the latest advances in forensic investigations, as well as to answer student questions. Demonstrations will include latent prints, bloodstain and trace evidence, firearm analysis, polygraph, forensic entomology, and others.
Representatives from eight Maryland colleges and universities offering forensic degrees will also be available to answer questions regarding career choices, degree options, and research opportunities. John Wallace, Ph.D., co-founder of the North American Forensic Entomology Association and diplomate of the American Board of Forensic Entomology, will provide a keynote address, "Maggots, Murder and Mayhem: Using Insects and Other Arthropods in Forensic Investigations." The conference will serve as an excellent opportunity to begin networking with some of the top forensic and law enforcement professionals in the State of Maryland.
The event is being sponsored by the Center for Forensic Excellence at Stevenson University, Loyola University Maryland, and Notre Dame of Maryland University. This event is open to high school and undergraduate students, but nomination and registration is required.
