Catherine Grgicak, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Chemistry
Dr. Grgicak is the team leader and principal investigator of the Laboratory for Forensic Technology Development & Integration, wherein we focus on developing methods to optimize forensic DNA signal and simplify the interpretation of low-level signal obtained from complex environments. We are the stewards of the PROVEDIt software and database, and the developers of ValiDNA – a systems approach to forensic optimization and validation.
