The ASCLD Forensic Research Committee is in the process of developing an R&D/Validation Repository. The goal is to compile a list of unique validations and R&D projects conducted by forensic labs. The repository will catalog these efforts and provide the contact information of the people responsible for the work. It is ASCLD’s hope that this listing will foster communication and reduce unnecessary repetition of validations to benefit the forensic community. If you find a validation or research project that you would like more information about, simply use the contact information provided to request a copy.

If you would like to submit information for the Repository, please click HERE.

Please use the following items to search the entries. You can use as many of the following as you need:
