Forensic Research-2015

Forensic nursing practice is "application of nursing science to public or legal proceedings." Forensic nurses investigate real and potential causes of morbidity and mortality in a variety of settings. Forensic nursing responsibilities range from collecting evidence from perpetrators and survivors of violent crime to testifying in court as a fact witness (someone who saw a situation firsthand) or an expert witness (someone who offers an opinion of a particular situation). Forensic nurses understand evidence collection, such as forensic photography, for subsequent legal and civil proceedings and are the "bridge between the criminal justice system and the health care system." Skills of the forensic nurse include but are not limited to: observation, documentation, and preservation of evidence, all critical in determining the legal outcome of violent crimes. The largest subspecialty of forensic nursing is sexual assault, closely followed by death investigation, forensic psychiatric nursing and medical-legal consulting.

Department of forensic medicine was a section within the Department of Pathology. Forensic medicine deals with the application of scientific medical knowledge to the administration of law, to the furthering of justice, and to the legal relations of the medical practitioner, forensic medicine addresses the physiology of dying, the cause and time of death, and post death phenomena. Forensic medicine deals with offenses against the person or patient. Practitioners of forensic medicine assist in medical-legal investigations by offering expert opinions to help legally authorized individuals understand the medical implications of pathological examinations, including post-mortem examinations (autopsies) of bodies, tissues, organs, and laboratory specimens.

Forensic Graphology is the study of handwriting especially that found in ransom notes, poison pen letters or blackmail demands. Forensic graphology covers many areas of investigation such as signature authentication, verifying handwriting on documents legal and non legal, comparisons of a suspect’s handwriting with poison pen letters. A forensic graphologist uses a number of tools and pieces of equipment to detect forgeries and obliterations. 

Forensic Genetics means the branch of genetics that deals with the application of genetic knowledge to legal problems and legal proceedings. Forensic genetics is also a branch of forensic medicine which deals more broadly with the application of medical knowledge to legal matters  and forensic DNA Analysis. Forensic genetics today tends to conjure up DNA. However, even the term "DNA fingerprinting" is reminiscent of older methods of police identification. Forensic genetics is not a new field. Long before the era of DNA fingerprinting, blood grouping, HLA typing and other tests of genetic markers in blood were done to try to determine who did it (and, more often, who did not do it).

Forensic Service & Market Analysis GIA announces the release of a comprehensive U.S. report on the Forensic Technologies and Services market. The U.S. market for Forensic Technologies and Services is projected to register $20.52 billion in annual revenue by 2015. Surging crime rates, particularly cases related to cyber crime, rising number of terrorist attacks, and stronger role of forensic sciences in bringing suspects to the book, are creating the need for increased adoption of forensic technologies and services. An increasingly security-conscious society, dramatic changes in national security, and technology innovations are also expected to drive the U.S. market for forensic technologies and services in the next few years. Fast growing popularity of Biometrics/Fingerprinting and DNA analysis in legal investigations too augurs well for this market

Track 15: Forensic Odontology

Forensic dentistry is the application of dental knowledge to those criminal and civil laws that are enforced by police agencies in a criminal justice system. Forensic dentists are involved in assisting investigative agencies to identify recovered human remains in addition to the identification of whole or fragmented bodies; forensic dentists may also be asked to assist in determining age, race, occupation, previous dental history and socioeconomic status of unidentified human beings. Forensic odontology has a wider scope. In USA around 6 universities are having this branch, but the targeted audience will be less than compared with research labs and university members.
