Emerging Research in Forensic Chemistry
April 4, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
The Forensic Technology Center of Excellence will host a webinar on Emerging Research in Forensic Chemistry on April 4, 2019 1:00:00 PM ET – 2:30:00 PM ET.
* * This webinar will be available for playback. Please visit the event link below.
In this installment of the Emerging Research series, four researchers will present their current research in the forensic chemistry discipline. Dr. Frederique Deiss will present on electrochemical paper-based sensors for the trace detection of explosive compounds at a crime scene. Next, we will have Dr. John Goodpaster presenting on Coupling Gas Chromatography (GC) and Vacuum Ultraviolet (VUV) spectroscopy for forensic applications.
Dr. Igor Lednev will present his research on the Raman spectroscopy methods for analyzing body fluid traces, and Dr. Christopher Palenik will discuss the development of an objective approach for the characterization and interpretation of paint evidence by SEM/EDS.
Highlighted learning objectives include:
- An overview of four NIJ-supported emerging research projects in the forensic chemistry discipline and their progress
- Potential impact of these research projects to the forensic community
- Discussion of next steps and transition of this research into the forensic community
Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
