Sidebar to the article NIJ's Innovative Research Spans Variety of Forensic Fields by Philip Bulman.

Between 2010 and 2013, NIJ closed more than 100 forensic science projects by submitting final technical reports for posting. DNA research and development plays a major role in NIJ's forensic science portfolio, but much of the research in the portfolio covers other forensic disciplines: impression evidence, controlled substances, fire and arson investigation, and forensic anthropology, to name a few.
