NIJ hosts the annual Forensic Science Research and Development Symposium so that you can learn about NIJ-funded research across a variety of forensic science areas.

The NIJ Forensic Research and Development program funds basic or applied projects that will increase the body of knowledge to guide and inform forensic science policy and practice, or result in the production of useful materials, devices, systems, or methods that have the potential for forensic application.
