We'll also discuss careers in Forensic Science and how interested students can prepare themselves for a career in Forensic Science. 
Brian Harmon has more than a decade of experience in forensic DNA analysis in his work for private labs, human rights projects and the government. He also provides training to forensic scientists from around the world.
