As MSU researchers, investigators, advocates, teachers, mentors, scientists and engineers, they battle illegal animal trade in Africa, work to prevent sexual assault in communities across the United States, analyze crime scenes and curb urban youth violence. These seven Spartan crime fighters have partnered with some of the top minds and agencies in crime prevention, from the FBI and the Department of Justice to the U.S. military and foreign governments. Committed to the common good, they dedicate themselves to research that strives for justice and seeks to make the world a better place. (Spoiler Alert: Eric Benbow and team are featured for making MSU the first university to work directly with medical examiners in the collection of human microbiome information at the scene of death or during autopsy.)
