World-Renowned Experts to Present at LabRoots’ Inaugural Forensics & Toxicology Virtual Conference

Registration is open for this free one-day event held on August 22nd providing a unique experience showcasing current trends in Forensic Science, Forensic Toxicology, and Pharmaceutical and Environmental Toxicology Research

LabRoots, the leading scientific social networking website, offering premier, interactive virtual events and webinars, is pleased to announce its inaugural Forensics & Toxicology Virtual Event on August 22nd, 2019.

The event will feature an impressive lineup of nationally-recognized leaders who will present on topics covering, forensic science: a multidisciplinary approach and the understanding of human health impacts in environmental chemical exposures, new concepts in forensic investigation, the interaction between crime scene and forensic evidence, contemporary techniques used in the forensic field, DNA profiling, and of course innovative advances and best practices in forensic toxicology and pharmacology.

Forensic Toxicology continues to be a dynamic field and a science with evolving technology applications. Scientific research acquires knowledge to develop and improve forensic toxicological tools and better evidence, the reality of the future. This agenda aims to deliver an educational opportunity for attendees to learn new methods and approaches in this field.

“A virtual audience is a little challenging but also exciting,” added Dr. Linda Birnbaum, Director, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institutes of Health and the National Toxicology Program. Exciting to get your message out to people who otherwise might not have the opportunity to hear what you have to say. I found in doing this virtual presentation, in my mind, I was talking to a specific audience.”

Dr. Linda Birnbaum, a board-certified toxicologist and who has served as a federal scientist for nearly 39 years, will pull from her breadth of expertise focused on environmental health research to deliver a keynote addressing a wide range of chemical exposures and how they may impact our health.

In the closing keynote, Dr. Henry Lee, one of the world’s foremost forensic scientists whose work has made him a landmark in modern-day criminal investigations, will draw on decades of notable experience in many of the most challenging cases spanning 50 years. Lee will cover the different types of forensic evidence, the multidisciplinary nature of forensic science and much more.

The symposium will be tailored to the interests of academic scientists, research scholars, physicians, toxicology and healthcare professionals, and biochemists around the globe involved in numerous facets such as forensic and laboratory medicine and medical toxicology providing the latest innovations and scientific approaches.

“LabRoots is recognized for its collaborative approach where academic and industry leaders come together virtually on a global basis. Through thought-provoking presentations of new knowledge, and novel findings we continue to discover together, said Greg Cruikshank, Chief Executive Officer of LabRoots. We’re excited to add Forensics & Toxicology to our spectrum of events and facilitate the scientific advancements of biomedical disciplines.”
