Forensic Science Lecture Series at the Indiana Medical History Museum
The Forensic Science Lecture Series (FSLS) was established in 2004 to help educate the public in the forensic sciences and related fields as well as to spotlight the fascinating stories that scientists have to tell. Two lectures are offered each year, one in the Spring or Summer and one in the Fall or Winter, sponsored jointly by the Indiana Medical History Museum and the University of Indianapolis Archeology & Forensics Laboratory.
The lectures are held in the Museum's glorious 100-seat amphitheater at 3045 W. Vermont Street, Indianapolis (on the grounds of the old Central State Hospital off of West Washington Street).
Call (317) 635-7329 or visit www.imhm.org for details. Lectures are free with paid admission to the Museum.
