Forensics Academy Instructor
Professor Drew Reams brings his students into the “real life” world of criminologists as an instructor in the Summer Academies for High School Students program. He is a professor of biological sciences at Sacramento State and heads the Forensics Academy, showing students how forensic biology can solve crimes and how CSI really works.
Reams has been a geneticist for 20 years and teaches undergraduate courses in genetics and forensic biology. He is the program adviser of two Sacramento State research labs: a bacterial genetics research lab and a forensic biology research lab, which focuses on unsolved problems in forensics.
