Academic Sites

CARFS is funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Justice to facilitate discovery in forensic science as an Industry-University Cooperative Research Center (NSF-I/UCRC). More than 40 researchers from our five partner universities collaborate with about 20 industrial partners to solve problems at the forefront of forensic science and promote innovation and commercialization of the technologies they develop.

Our academic sites are located at Florida International University (FIU) and the University of South Alabama (USA). Within USA, the affiliate site includes Texas A&M University (TAMU) and Boston University (BU), where research spans the field of forensic digital security (USA) and forensic microbiology (TAMU).
