Overview

Morning Session II: Controlled Substances & Toxicology

The NIJ Research and Development (R&D) Program funds both basic or applied R&D projects that will: (1) increase the body of knowledge to guide and inform forensic science policy and practice, or (2) result in the production of useful materials, devices, systems, or methods that have the potential for forensic application. The intent of this program is to direct the findings of basic scientific research and development in broader scientific fields applicable to forensic science and ongoing forensic science research. This program is directed toward the development of highly discriminating, accurate, reliable, cost-effective, and rapid methods for the identification, analysis, and interpretation of physical evidence for criminal justice purposes. Original Live Symposium took place on 02/20/2018.
