Cameron Forensic Medical Sciences

Cameron Forensic Medical Sciences was established in February 2006 in order to fulfil an urgent need for a viable forensic medical centre in London and the South East of England which would aim to promote a high standard of academic excellence.



Since its establishment in 2006, the Group has become a stimulus and hub for the development of academic Forensic Medicine and related Medical Sciences in the London area and further afield. We are a thriving forensic medical community of academics, consultants and researchers and offer postgraduate training opportunities to science graduates (MSc) and medical students (Intercalated MSc).

James Cameron

Cameron Forensic Medical Sciences was named in memory of one of Britain’s most eminent forensic practitioners, James Malcolm Cameron who was the last Professor of Forensic Medicine in London and who was based at the old London Hospital Medical College at Whitechapel.

Professor Cameron gave 30 years of service to the London Hospital Medical College and was a firm advocate of academic forensic medicine and its promotion as a broad-based discipline within the university system.
