Bintz, Hickman, Grisedale share research at FBI

Late last year, three WCU faculty and staff members in the Forensic Science Program traveled to the Quantico, Virginia, to give invited talks at the Federal Bureau of Investigation Academy.

Maureen Peters Hickman (forensic research scientist), Brittania Bintz (research scientist and academic advisor in the program) and Kelly Grisedale (assistant professor of forensic science) discussed cutting-edge research being performed within the Forensic Science Program at WCU.

They also met with civilian scientists to learn new DNA quantification techniques being developed in the FBI research laboratory.

“Ultimately, this meeting will help foster an ongoing collaboration between scientists at WCU and the FBI,” Bintz said. “WCU will adopt the technique and adapt it for use on an alternative instrumental platform, and help the FBI lab evaluate the utility of the protocol in casework.”
