National Academy of Sciences Reports Progress in NIJ's Role in Forensic Science



The National Academy of Sciences has published Support for Forensic Science Research: Improving the Scientific Role of the National Institute of Justice, an independent and rigorous review of NIJ's contribution to forensic science research and development. NIJ commissioned the report to help monitor the Institute's progress in addressing the challenges outlined in the 2009 report, Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward, and the 2010 report, Strengthening the National Institute of Justice. In her most recent Director's Corner message, available at http://nij.gov/about/director/Pages/rodriguez-support-for-forensic-research.aspx, NIJ Director Nancy Rodriguez thanks NAS for its efforts and notes she is pleased that NIJ has made progress toward meeting the challenges outlined in the two earlier reports.
