I Dig Bones: Adventures in Forensic Anthropology is the topic of the November 16 2010 edition of OMSI Science Pub at the Mission Theater (1624 NW Glisan).
Ever want to know what happens when mysterious human remains are found in the woods? Ever wondered how bodies are identified, even after death and decomposition? Dr. Nici Vance will provide a glimpse into the life of bones, bodies, and biological anthropology as she explains how skeletal remains are discovered, recovered, and analyzed for identification purposes. Dr. Vance will also highlight the importance of DNA analysis in bringing closure to families of missing persons throughout the nation and what you can do to help.
This Science Pub will be presented by Dr. Veronica “Nici” Vance from the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory and the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office. The show is from 7pm until 9pm, but arrive early (5pm doors open) to secure your beer, grub, and a seat! There’s a $3.00 suggested donation/cover charge. Minors with adults are welcome, otherwise this event is 21 and over.
