Researchers at FIU’s International Forensic Research Institute (IFRI) have been awarded $1.5 million from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to further research in drug exposure detection, forensic chemistry, synthetic cannabinoids and DNA analysis.
IFRI/Chemistry Alumna are highlighted in this month’s IFRI News.
Just 2 centimeters long and 2 millimeters in diameter, a sorbent tube invented by an FIU researcher could bring analytical chemistry to the masses. The simple yet highly sensitive device is designed to sample volatile chemicals in the air, your home, food and even your body.
Making sure that advances in forensic science make it to the lab analysts' bench. Watch this site for updates.
