From Submission to Court: The Basics of a Forensic Biology Laboratory

Event Dates

So often, forensic laboratories are fundamentally disconnected from investigators and prosecutors without little understanding of what happens as an item of evidence is submitted to a lab and is eventually transforms into a result in a laboratory report.

This session will specifically examine both the layout and basic workflow of a forensic biology laboratory as evidence ultimately progresses from submission to the reported information used in court.

By understanding the basics of lab design, workflow, and the rigor that goes into forensic biology laboratory validation, multidisciplinary team members will have a better appreciation of the processes and quality therein as it applies to fully examining items of evidence for use in a court of law.

This webinar is brought to you by the Zero Abuse Project in conjunction with OJJDP's NTTAC.

The webinar was originally scheduled for December 15, 2020, and was rescheduled to January 26, 2021. There is no need to re-register for the new event date; your registration remains valid for the January 26 event. 

Date Created: October 27, 2020
