IFRI 4th Annual Symposium a great success

FIU’s International Forensic Research Institute (IFRI) recently hosted its annual forensic science symposium May 5-6, 2015, at the Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs building at Modesto A. Maidique Campus.

In its fourth year, the symposium brought together law enforcement agencies, industry and academia to share knowledge and showcase cutting-edge research. FIU faculty and students as well as forensic science professionals covered topics including predicting physical appearance from DNA, marine and underwater investigations, a new method for explosives detection, screening for designer drugs and rapid detection of “Flakka” – a new highly addictive synthetic amphetamine-like stimulant.
