Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $126,505)

The objective of this project is to investigate the molecular level processes that impact the superglue fuming of a latent print in order to provide fundamental information that can be utilized by forensic scientists to optimize the fuming process. This project seeks to optimize the superglue fuming fingerprint development technique for a broad range of conditions by determining the controlling molecular actors in this process. ca/ncf
