Sexual Assault: Obtaining DNA From Evidence Collected up to a Week Later

Panelists will present the research that has led to these findings, followed by a discussion of the potential impact of this work from the perspectives of the sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) and the crime laboratory communities.
