On February 16, SURVICE employee Jordan Matthews participated in the National Institute of Justice's (NIJ's) 2021 Forensic Science Research and Development (R&D)Symposium. The event focused on bringing together researchers and practitioners to discuss, discover, and share new approaches and applications to increase the impact of forensic science. This event was particularly interesting, as it related to some controlled substance analysis work we are conducting in support of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
