Forensic Sciences 2020

LabRoots is pleased to announce our 2nd Forensic Sciences Virtual Event on May 6, 2020. Join us for this free, one-day event on May 6th as we discuss DNA, chemistry, toxicology, digital forensics, and the important marginal area where science and medicine interact with the law.

This years event include the following tracks:

Forensic Research: From Evidence to Testimony

Advances and Challenges in Forensic Research

Analytical Strategy and Application of Analytical Methods in Forensic Toxicology and Pharmacology

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  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.
