Presentation Description:

Over the last few years, the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors (ASCLD) Forensic Research Committee (FRC) has created and launched tools to help advance forensic science research and further research collaborations within the forensic science community. From this presentation, participants will learn about forensic science research needs, the Laboratories and Educators Alliance Program (LEAP) which enables research partnerships, repositories for forensic research, evaluation, and validation efforts, executive research summaries, the research collaboration hub, Lighting Talks, and more! This presentation is for individuals who are looking to become more engaged in forensic science research and want to learn more about the opportunities that the ASCLD FRC is creating to benefit the forensic science community.
