Memberships

Our experienced and reputable team at the Forensic Foundations Group founded and manages three independent organizational entities each having its own community of members, all of whom are active or have professional interests in the forensic laboratory sciences.  The Forensic Foundations Group funds and incubates these organizations for eventual transition to nonprofit status and independence.
