18th June 2013: Dead Man Talking - a day-long conference on the investigation and identification of skeletal remains. Only £40 for a student ticket - see the website for further details and to book.
The UCL JDI Centre for the Forensic Sciences is a hub for collaborative links between a wide range of departments and researchers, with the aim of developing focused multidisciplinary responses to key issues within the academic discipline and its wider implications for the judicial process and public debate. The Centre seeks to foster innovation in both the development of the academic discipline and the practice of the forensic sciences.
There is a current research group comprising academics across UCL, and in conjunction with the SECReT programme the Centre supports postgraduate research students from MRes through to completion of their PhDs.
