Thursday, September 22, 2022 | Posters will be available at 1:00 PM Eastern

Welcome to our virtual poster session! As fall semester begins and in honor of National Forensic Science Week (September 18-24, 2022), the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) would like to highlight student research in the forensic sciences! The FTCoE is grateful for all the universities, faculty, and students who took the time to prepare poster presentations for submission to this year’s event. We recognize your hard work, and we are here to celebrate and learn from your research.

National Forensic Science Week recognizes the contribution that forensic science makes to the criminal justice system. It is an opportunity to celebrate academic programs, forensic professionals, and scientific research in the various forensic disciplines. Throughout the week, the FTCoE will be engaging with the community to bolster our presence and to highlight the impact that forensic science has in the world! Subscribe to the FTCoE Newsletter and follow @ForensicCOE on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to stay up to date on news and events. Stay tuned for everything that the FTCoE has to offer for this year's National Forensic Science Week!
