In the Wee Small Hours, A Life in Forensics

Wednesday, January 14, 2009 @ 7:30 PM-9:00 PM

Featured Speakers: Mary E. S. Case, M.D., Chief Medical Examiner, St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Franklin counties; Professor of Pathology, Saint Louis University School of Medicine

W. Christopher Long, P.D., Director of Toxicology & Associate Professor of Pathology, Saint Louis University School of Medicine

Everyday casualties, assaults, traffic accidents, foul play, murder, illness, and suspicious circumstances… Forensic scientists are the living interpreters for the voices of the dead, the end of their stories told through the egalitarian scientific work of the often sleep deprived scientists who investigate unusual death. In our high-tech world of spectacularly fast computer algorithms for DNA and data analysis, how do we establish cause of death? What happens in the autopsy rooms, toxicology, and pathology laboratories of the scientists and medical doctors working in forensic science? St. Louis County Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Mary Case and forensic toxicologist, Dr. Christopher Long, document this curious science in service to the stories of lives lived that every victim has to tell.

All Seminars are held in The Living World (north side of Zoo)
Parking FREE in Zoo North Lot.
