Forensic Sciences 2021

LabRoots is pleased to announce our 3rd Forensic Sciences Virtual Event on May 5, 2021. Join us for this free, one-day event on May 5th as we discuss DNA, chemistry, toxicology, digital forensics, and the important marginal area where science and medicine interact with the law.

This year's event includes the following tracks:

Forensic Research: From Evidence to Testimony

  • Forensic Genealogy

Advances and Challenges in Forensic Research

  • COVID-19 Impact on Forensic Science

Application of Analytical Methods in Forensic Sciences

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global microbiology community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Like the 2020 conference, this event will be produced on our robust platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots' most popular T-shirts.


 

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary, and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2021 Forensic Sciences Virtual Event. Submission is free. Submit your abstract here.

Continuing Education  LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this event, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit per presentation for a maximum of 30 credits.
