Research and Development in Forensic Science: a Review

By Sunny August 15th, 2011 News No Comments

The following is taken from and was originally published on June 30th 2011.

In January 2011, Professor Bernard Silverman, Home Office Chief Scientific Adviser, was commissioned by Home Office ministers to conduct a review of research and development relevant to forensic science.

This review, conducted by the Home Office Chief Scientific Adviser, demonstrates the very wide range of research and development relevant to forensic science, carried out by forensic science providers, universities, and laboratories associated with Government.   The review was informed by widespread consultation, with over 80 respondents, including over 40 universities identifying research relevant to forensic science. The review makes recommendations to policy makers and others in the forensic science community, particularly underlining the crucial role that representative organisations and learned and professional societies have in providing a forum for the communication, development and validation of ideas, to act as advocates and representatives of the field, and be a focus for the relevant research and development communities.
