Our staff, PhD candidates and honours students use the house to conduct research, including projects investigating bloodstain pattern analysis, DNA transfer and the persistence of fingerprints on objects.
Research is also conducted in collaboration with the Victoria Police Forensic Services department to ensure that our research teaching and training continues to replicate what is performed in real life.
