This National Institute of Justice (NIJ) funded resource details presentations at the 2019 NIJ Forensic Science Research and Development Symposium.
The 2019 National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Forensic Science Research and Development (R&D) Symposium was designed to promote collaboration and enhance knowledge transfer of NIJ-funded multidisciplinary research, social and laboratory sciences, and related international activities. The NIJ Forensic Science R&D Program funds both basic and applied R&D projects that serve to 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. The intent of the program is to direct the findings of basic scientific research; research and development in broader scientific fields applicable to forensic science; and ongoing forensic science research 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.
