Applications for ANZFSS Symposium Awards which typically provide for registration at the forthcoming ANZFSS symposium, are currently being assessed.
Applicants will be notified by mid-March whether they have been successful or not.
ANZFSS Council is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2017 Allan Hodda Memorial Award is Dr SallyAnn Harbison (ESR, NZ). She plans to travel to London and Amsterdam in May 2018 to learn more about the practical applications of massively parallel sequencing in forensic science (including development of quality standards), next generation sequencing technology, and current developments/future research in mRNA typing for body fluid ID in routine casework.
In November 2016, the ANZFSS Council published on this homepage a response to the 2016 report of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST report). Following a number of other publications, in November 2017 Council wrote a letter to the Editor of the Australian Journal of Forensic Sciences. The original (November 2016) ANZFSS Council response is here, with the full text of the follow up letter available here.
