A time to eat, drink, & talk about Science! - 7th year of Science on Tap

This month’s topic: Research and Casework in Forensic Anthropology and Bioarchaelogy presented by Amy Michael, Lecturer / Adjunct Instructor Anthropology - University of New Hampshire  

Forensic anthropologists are uniquely suited to assist law enforcement solve complex and cold cases involving skeletonized human remains. As specialists in human osteology, forensic anthropologists can determine the age, sex, and ancestry from a set of human remains, determine if small fragments of bone are human or animal, and even identify human remains from plane crashes, fires, and other mass disasters. In this presentation, various typical (and atypical!) cases will be reviewed, with a focus on current research related to the effects of opioid abuse on human bone. Finally, the missing and murdered indigenous women and girls epidemic will be summarized from a forensic anthropology perspective. 

Talks are free, and aimed at an adult audience, but all are welcome.  Food and drink are available for purchase at the event.

Thanks to the continued support of UNM, Explora and the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History.
