An experienced forensic pathologist residing in Austin, Texas, Dr. Danielo Perez has provided services over the years to many counties in the state that don’t have medical examiners of their own. Committed to the advancement of his participation outside of his work in Austin, Dr. Danielo Perez is a member of the American Academy of Forensic Scientists (AAFS).
The AAFS recently highlighted an opportunity for AAFS members and affiliates to travel for an international presentation at the Brazilian Academy of Forensic Sciences (BAFS) Second interFORENSICS Conference in May 2019. AAFS is offering the Young Forensic Scientists Scholarship, which will cover the cost of the trip, to student/trainee affiliates, as well as associate members and members who are 35 or younger.
Those interested can submit their 500-word or less applications in either English or Portuguese to the conference’s online portal at interforensics.com/en. A panel of AAFS/Forensic Sciences Foundation jurors will review all applications and choose three submissions to receive scholarship funding. The deadline for all applications is March 1, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. EST.
