Professor Lorna Dawson, Head of Soil Forensics at the James Hutton Institute, will take part in the Royal Society panel event Forensic femme fatales, which is being held at the Society on Saturday 4 July 2015 at 3.30pm as part of the Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2015.

The Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition is an annual display of the most exciting cutting-edge science and technology in the UK. It provides a unique opportunity for members of the public to interact with scientists and ask them questions about their work. This year there will be 22 exhibits alongside a programme of public events throughout the week. The Exhibition is the Society's main public event of the year and is open to members of the general public as well as students, teachers, scientists, policymakers and the media.

During the Forensic femme fatales event, Professor Dawson will be joined by professors Sue Black and Niamh Nic Daeid (University of Dundee), as well as by leading crime novelist Val McDermid for a fascinating, enlightening, funny and sobering discussion on ways forensic science can help catch criminals.
