I am delighted to announce that the second Journal of Forensic Sciences (JFS) Forensic Lab Talks Seminar, titled An Introduction to the Forensic Investigation and Analysis of Trace Evidence, is scheduled for November 16 at 1:00pm ET. The seminar will be presented by Mr. Skip Palenik, President and Senior Research Microscopist at Microtrace LLC.

As announced previously, JFS has joined forces with Wiley to present a series of virtual educational seminars for forensic scientists. 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 Forensic Lab Talks Seminar Series is provided free of charge as a value-added member benefit.

The first Forensic Lab talks seminar, titled Collaborative Research to Address Seized Drug Challenges, presented by Dr. Edward Sisco, was a tremendous success with a total of over 1,000 registrants. We were thrilled by the interest shown from the forensic community for our inaugural seminar. For those who participated, thank you again for contributing to its success.

We are excited about offering our second Forensic Lab Talks virtual educational seminar on November 16, 2022. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE!

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.
