The Department was established 1 September 1910.
The Department has three sections:

The Department of Forensic Medicine focuses on integration of basic science with applied science in forensic medicine. Our aim is to generate new knowledge that can be used in diagnostics in forensic medicine.
The Department has at its disposal advanced apparatus and high-level competencies in a number of important areas, including chemical analysis, biochemical and pharmacological in silico modelling, DNA-typing and sequencing, 3-D imaging with NMR, CT and advanced video.
Forensic medical service
The Department provides services to Danish society in forensic anthropology, chemistry, genetics, pathology and clinical forensic medicine. The departments/institutes of forensic medicine at the universities of Aarhus, Copenhagen and South Denmark are presently the main providers of investigations and expertise in forensic medicine to Danish society.
