After a nice “summer break” September is upon us and the travel schedule is filling up again. We are looking forward to the Northwest Association of Forensic Sciences meeting in Missoula, Montana. In addition to teaching “Bloodstain Analysis for the Bench Level Scientist” Karen will be giving a talk on her experiences with ICITAP and the challenges faced by forensics scientists in other countries. If we’re lucky the weather will cooperate and we can squeeze some golf in as well. Should be a great week!
