DNA Conference

Past Conferences 

Conference Theme: To advance collection, chain-of-evidence and analytical methodologies in forensic DNA analysis and to debate the impact of “familial testing” on American Civil Liberties.   

Joins us for this exciting 3 day Forensic DNA conference to be held at MassBay Community College on our Wellesley Hills Campus.  


Scientifically, the conference will focus on Forensic DNA Analysis of human remains, in particular, bones, and will feature scientists who are experts in the field from around the world.  

A highlight of the conference will be the a debate on Familial Testing between nationally renowned legal proponents and opponents of this controversial use of DNA and its impact on American Civil Liberties. This promises to be a lively debate that will delve into the intersect of law and science and its possible effect on the constitutional rights of American citizens.
