“You sit here today, and you’re leaving evidence of yourself behind,” Hilliard told us before Friday’s lecture. “You’ve touched something. You’ve left fingerprints behind. Maybe some fibers have fallen from your clothes. Maybe some hairs have fallen from your head. And those things are sitting here waiting to be discovered by someone.”

“The whole basis of forensic sciences depends upon transfer of evidence,” he said.

Chem 391 lectures are held on Fridays from 3:30 to 5 pm. in 124 Pastore Hall. For more info go to chm.uri.edu/forensics/seminars.php.
