Applications for ANZFSS Symposium Awards (previously ‘Symposium Travel Awards’) are now open, and close at 5pm ACDT on Friday 9th February. These awards are open to current general, student and life members, and typically provide for registration at the forthcoming ANZFSS symposium. The same application will be used to assess applicants for both Executive (previously ‘National’) and Branch ANZFSS Symposium Awards.
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.
