AAAS Update on Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Decade of Development

November 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the Innocence Project and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), in collaboration with the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine (NASEM), for a one-day conference commemorating the 10th anniversary of the pathbreaking NASEM report “Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward,” a report that challenged the way forensic science is conducted and the way it is presented in the courts.

Featured sessions will address developments over the past decade in the forensic sciences and in the courts, as well as in federal agencies and in laboratories.
