Want to find out how the patterns of veins on hands can help catch a criminal?

CAHID’s Dr Helen Meadows will reveal all at a Café Science Extra event on Wednesday, September 10th, 6pm, in Dundee Science Centre’s infusion cafe.

Dr Meadows will focus on a new scientific technique – accepted by the UK courts for the first time in 2007 – which studies the patterns of veins on hands. It was used in a ground-breaking trial to identify a suspect from images associated with a case of alleged child abuse.

Since 2007, cases of a similar nature have continued to be presented to the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification (CAHID) at the University of Dundee. Dr Helen Meadows will give an overview of the technique and her work on analysing and creating databases of hand features.

Café Science Extra takes place in the relaxed atmosphere of Dundee Science Centre’s infusion cafe. Everyone is welcome. Non-bookable. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
