A dozen law enforcement professionals from around the world recently visited USF to take part in an annual workshop that teaches them how to use forensic imaging tools, like facial reconstruction and age progression, to help identify suspects and find missing people. We show you some of the methods they learned on University Beat on WUSF TV.

Biomedical Research Roundtable

Biomedical research has a multi-billion dollar presence in the Florida economy, thanks in part to federal funding. But those funds are threatened by previous sequestration cuts and possible new ones.

A recent roundtable gave a trio of Bay area legislators and scientists from USF and Moffitt Cancer Center the chance to talk about the impact research has made and the best ways to continue making that impact in the future. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 has a recap.
