Chemistry in Forensic Sciences: Dr. Jason Schaff, FBI forensic chemist

Wed, Apr 17, 2013, 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Dr. Jason Schaff, a forensic chemist with the FBI, will give a presentation on “Chemistry in Forensic Sciences.” This event was organized by the MU Science Club, in collaboration with the Chemical Society of Washington Younger Chemists Committee (CSW-YCC).

Dr. Schaff received a B.S. in chemistry in 1991 from Yale University and a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry in 1997 from the University of Minnesota. He spent a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Indiana University Medical School, doing research on analysis of anabolic steroids. Since 1999, Dr. Schaff has worked as a forensic chemist at the FBI Laboratory where he performs analyses that support toxicology investigations, including poisonings, product tampering, drug-facilitated sexual assaults, and coroner inquests from U.S. territories and possessions. He also works on the implementation of new analytical methods and technologies to support these investigations.
