The goal of the Laboratories and Educators Alliance Program (LEAP) is to facilitate collaborative research between academia and forensic science laboratories. This joint effort between the American Society of Crime Lab Directors (ASCLD) and the Council of Forensic Science Educators (COFSE) identifies forensic science needs and provides a platform for laboratories, researchers, and industry partners to seek partnerships and projects that align with their mutual research capabilities.
Over 140 LEAP Collaborating Partners (Laboratories, Academia, and Industry Partners) across 7 countries: USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Brazil, Italy, and Saudi Arabia.
