This year’s ISHI conference will be held as an in-person event with no virtual offerings. Should that change, we will post an update on our website.
The largest annual meeting focusing entirely on DNA forensics.
Discover the newest advances in DNA technology from top experts in the field at the 34th International Symposium on Human Identification. It’s all happening September 18-21, 2023!
The Mindset for Success — Activating True Resilience
Tuesday, September 19, 2023 | Keynote presentation
What is the mindset needed to be vibrant, alive and in command of your life? What does it look and feel like? At any moment, life can throw turmoil in our direction—uncertainty and unrest from changes at work, the shock of sudden financial loss, an automobile accident, serious illness…What does it take to be ok inside of ourselves no matter what?
With vision, clarity, and compassion, Allison teaches audiences the potent life lessons that she learned on each step of her path after she was severely burned in a fire and faced seemingly insurmountable odds. Her riveting keynote boosts confidence and well-being and offers a balm of hope as Allison intimately shares the nuances of how to respond to difficult circumstances and maintain personal command and integrity despite life’s disruptions. With genuine encouragement and support, you’ll receive a new perspective from which to see the world and walk away with effective methods to handle challenges and move towards dreams and goals with courage, purpose, and the strength of an open heart.
Threesis Competition and Student Ambassador Search
Calling all students and young scientists! We’ve launched our Threesis Academic Challenge and have begun our search for the next ISHI Student Ambassadors. Applications for both are due April 30, 2023. Learn more on our Student Resources page.
Book a booth at ISHI and introduce your products and services to scientists from around the world. You’ll reach decision makers who purchase products and services related to all aspects of forensic DNA.
Advancements in forensic techniques and technologies never stop, so learning shouldn't either. Watch one of our on-demand webinars.
The ISHI Report
Each quarter, we’ll bring you a glimpse into the fascinating field of forensic science and the dedicated people committed to carrying out the important work of identifying the missing, exonerating the innocent and finding the truth in each DNA sample.

Forensic Genomics is the Official Journal of ISHI
Forensic Genomics is a new peer-reviewed journal that addresses how advances in genetic testing and genomic analysis can enable investigators to break through previously impenetrable forensic DNA barriers. Led by Editor-in-Chief Nicole Novroski PhD, the Journal focuses on the use of DNA testing technologies, algorithms, artificial intelligence, and genealogical research methods to support human identification using inference tools and inductive reasoning. Forensic Genomics aims to accelerate the validation and adoption of new methods to support investigations that would be otherwise stalled with traditional testing methods (view past issues).
