COVID-19 conditions can change at any given moment along with state and local requirements. We will communicate if protocols for this meeting are updated at any time. It is strongly encouraged, but not required, that participants stay up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccinations to provide protection from severe illness. PLEASE NOTE: Depending on COVID-19 levels in Washington DC, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History may require proof of vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours to attend the off-site event. ISHI will not be providing test kits to attendees. For those who have received their full WHO- and CDC-approved COVID initial vaccinations, please upload a copy of your vaccination card. | Learn more here.

Connect with Attendees and Exhibitors
ISHI will have dedicated networking opportunities where you can chat with other attendees, speakers, and exhibitors both virtually and in person.
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.
It can be difficult to navigate obtaining your degree and then beginning your career. That’s why we’ve created this resource page.
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.
FGG Webinar Series
This free three-part webinar equips genetic forensics professionals with information about what cases are best suited for FGG, what labs and prosecutors will face when they take these cases to court, and which technologies are best for generating a genetic profile for FGG analysis.
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).
