Inhalt After a general introduction into the tasks of forensic medicine and science the course is divided in three parts all focusing on biomedical technology in forensics: forensic imaging, forensic toxicology, and forensic genetics:
A) Forensic toxicology:
Forensic Hair testing: The lecture will cover fundamentals, field of application, state of the art analytical methods and future trends in forensic hair analysis.
Dried Blood Spots (DBS): The lecture will cover different approaches in the analysis of DBS, general fields of application, particularly in forensic science, and pros and cons with respect to other matrices.
Biosensor applications in Forensic Science: The lecture will provide an overview and general information about different biosensor approaches, applications, limitations, current applications in forensics science and future trends.
B) Forensic imaging:
- Introduction, historical overview and current status
- Different postmortem imaging techniques and applications (X-ray, CT, MRI, infrared photography)
- Different in vivo imaging techniques and applications (X-ray, CT, MRI)
C) Forensic genetics:
The lecture will give an introduction into applied and (potential) future methods in forensic genetics. It will present the processes and techniques from the genome to its DNA profile. Thereby, applied methods such as DNA extraction, PCR technique and electrophoresis will be presented. Also, an introduction into NGS, MPS, pyrosequencing and epigenetic methods and its application platforms used in research (and potentially in future routine work) will be given.
As there will be a poster presentation instead of a formal test there will also be given an introduction on how to construct a scientific poster, including a guideline on good practice and some examples. Students will learn which components/parts are mandatory and critical.
Lernziele Learning objectives are
- to understand the discussed methods and challenges in forensic toxicology
- to understand the differences between clinical and forensic imaging
- to know the different postmortem techniques and applications
- to know the different in vivo techniques and applications
- to have an overview of current applied and future potential methods in forensic genetics
