The Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science is funded by the Leverhulme Trust. LRCFS works to disrupt conventional thinking, embrace new opportunities and drive innovation that enables reliable science to be used in the delivery of justice.
Our research links across five thematic pillars asking bold questions about the robustness of the science used in the investigation of crime science, laboratory analysis and the presentation of scientific evidence within the courts.
Raising standards and promoting a realistic understanding of current forensic science whilst unlocking the door to new opportunities and potential.
