New frontiers in forensic science at Leicester

Following the announcement of the University's plans to consider the feasibility of developing a new city centre attraction which will focus on the evolution of forensic science and the important role this has played in solving crimes, a new feature explores how Leicester is continuing to push the boundaries with new forensic techniques and technologies.

The Leicester DNA and Forensic Science Centre will hopefully feature, alongside other forensic procedures, the work of Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys, who pioneered DNA fingerprinting techniques at the University in 1984.

This feature looks at The Government Chief Scientific Adviser (GCSA)'s 2015 report on forensic techniques and technologies, innovation and the future of forensic science.
