Our Team

A COLLABORATION OF FORENSIC SCIENCE Researchers

More than 80 researchers and national practitioners from across six universities work together with forensic practitioners, forensic laboratories and law professionals to build strong scientific foundations that enhance forensic science and technology practices. We lead partnerships with forensic science laboratories and professional associations to address emerging issues and ensure two-way communication between the forensic science community and the academic research community.
