Emerging Forensic Research Webinar Series

Emerging Forensic Research Webinar Series

Overview

The goal of this webinar series is to disseminate novel research that is being completed within the forensic community. This series will be the platform for forensic research dissemination and will include both active and completed research projects. Research is critical to the advancement of the practice of forensic science, as noted by the 2009 National Academies of Science report “Strengthening Forensic Sciences in the United States: A Path Forward”, and the 2016 President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology report “Forensic Science in Criminal Courts Ensuring Scientific Validity of Feature-Comparison Methods.” This platform can be used to both learn of ongoing research and to disseminate your own.

Opportunities

If you are performing research in any forensic discipline and would like to use the FTCoE platform to showcase your work to the community, please contact us at forensicCOE@rti.org. Research can be funded by the NIJ, other forensic funding agencies, or internally funded by your own institution. Our goal is to disseminate all technologies that have the potential to impact the criminal justice community as a whole!

Collaborators and Funding

The Emerging Forensic Research Webinar Series is brought to you by the Forensic Technology Center of Excellence.

Funding for this Webinar Series has been provided by the National Institute of Justice’s Forensic Technology Center of Excellence.
