Novel Forensic Chemistry Research from Early-Career Scientists

Novel Forensic Chemistry Research from Early-Career Scientists

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM ET
Duration: 1.5 hour(s)

National Forensic Science Week recognizes the contribution that forensic science makes to the criminal justice system. Throughout the week, the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) will be engaging with the community and the target audience this year will be early-career scientists. On Wednesday, September 19th, early-career researchers will present novel projects in forensic chemistry, with topics including toxicology, opioids, and novel psychoactive substances (NPS).

During this webinar, each presenter will provide a brief overview of their research topic and address questions from attendees during a Q&A session. Research topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Use of a LC-QTOF Assay for the discovery of emerging NPS
• Stability of synthetic cathinones in blood using LC/Q-TOF-MS
• Stability of synthetic piperazines in human whole blood under various storage conditions over time
• Phase I metabolism of Desomorphine
• Segmental analysis of GHB in human head hair
• Development of a Raman (SERS) based alternative to immunoassays

Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
