Forensic Anthropology Facility, North East
Mercyhurst University recently acquired a building on the Mercyhurst North East, PA campus, approximately 15 minutes away from main campus. The Applied Forensic Science Department has been granted a large space in JLM Center, and we anticipate that it will be one of the best-equipped facilities currently offered by any forensic anthropology program. The new facility, called the Hirtzel Forensic Anthropology Laboratory, includes a secure processing laboratory with autopsy tables, state-of-the-art autopsy tools and benches, and a walk-in cooler for storage of cases. Additionally, there will be a digital x-ray machine and a smaller teaching room. Forensic case and human remains processing is conducted here.
