I am delighted to announce that the Journal of Forensic Sciences (JFS) has joined forces with Wiley to present a series of virtual educational seminars for forensic scientists. The Forensic Lab Talks Seminar Series will be provided free of charge as a value-added member benefit. 

The series will cover a range of topics important to our forensic community highlighting the most recent methods and best practices in areas such as forensic chemistry (covering spectroscopy, microscopy, and other techniques), toxicology, trace evidence, DNA analysis, and many more.

The first seminar, entitled Collaborative Research to Address Seized Drug Challenges, will be presented by Dr. Edward Sisco, Research Chemist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, on September 14, 1:00pm EDT. Additional information on this virtual seminar, as well as the link to register, will be forthcoming next week.

We are excited about this new JFS initiative and look forward to announcing future Forensic Lab Talks virtual educational seminars as they are finalized.

Thank you for your continued support of JFS and its initiatives. For questions about the seminar series, please contact JFS Managing Editor Brenda Peat at bpeat@aafs.org.
