Introduction to forensic science


  • Francesco ROMOLO


The presentation will explain “what is forensic science” beginning with an historical introduction. The role of forensic scientists in criminal investigation will be illustrated, beginning with the principle of Locard. A discussion about the meaning of “identification”, “classification” and “individualization” will follow. Different types of scientific evidence will be explained, showing the casework analytical approach and the opportunities of nuclear techniques to provide added value in forensic science.
