Did you miss the 2020 National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Forensic Science Research and Development Symposium at the AAFS Annual Meeting? You can now watch the program online. In this session, NIJ brings together practitioners and researchers to work towards moving research from theory to practice.
The NIJ Forensic Science R&D Program funds both basic and applied research projects to:
(1) Increase the body of knowledge to guide and inform forensic science policy and practice
(2) Result in the production of useful materials, devices, systems, or methods that have the potential for forensic application.
Watch the symposium or review the proceedings to learn more about new forensic science approaches and applications and how the community can work together to elevate the status of forensic science.
