      Forensic Medicine and Toxicology  is a branch of medicine that deals with the application of medical knowledge to legal cases. Forensic medicine involves the examination of medical evidence, such as injuries, wounds, and traces of drugs or toxins, to determine the cause and manner of death or injury. Toxicology is a subfield of forensic medicine that specifically deals with the study of drugs and toxins in the body.

Forensic medicine and toxicology play a critical role in the investigation of criminal cases, including homicide, assault, and drug-related crimes. 

 The Forensic Medicine and Toxicology Department also provides knowledge about expertise in civil cases, such as personal injury cases, where medical evidence is needed to establish causation and liability.  

      Overall, the Forensic Medicine and Toxicology Department plays a critical role in the justice system by providing valuable medical expertise in legal cases. Its contributions to the field of forensic science have improved our understanding of the causes and consequences of criminal activity and have helped to ensure that justice is served.
