Uniting the Sciences for Justice

The Global Forensic and Justice Center is an innovative resource for education, research, training and policy initiatives related to criminal justice, cyber and emerging forensic sciences.



The Center for the Administration of Justice (CAJ) at FIU has been actively involved in justice system modernization since 1984. CAJ works both nationally and internationally with projects ranging from reforming prosecutorial systems in the United States to providing technical assistance and training to justice systems in Latin America. Funding agencies have awarded over $60 million dollars to CAJ at FIU since its creation. CAJ has been the recipient of major grants from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, INL, NIJ, Mac Arthur Foundation, and Koch Foundation for projects in Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, United States, Uruguay, and Venezuela.


The Center for Advanced Research in Forensic Science (CARFS) serves as a platform for innovative and interdisciplinary forensic science research activities at the interface of academia, government, and industry. CARFS research programs include forensic chemistry, digital forensics/data analytics, forensic molecular biology, behavioural sciences, forensic anthropology and forensic microbiology, with the possibility of future expansion to include other forensic disciplines.


The International Forensic Research Institute (IFRI) serves local and national law enforcement efforts in the application of scientific principles to the administration of justice. The mission of this self-supporting institute is to conduct original research in forensic science, transfer technologies from other scientific disciplines for use in forensic applications, provide scientific expertise to the law enforcement and legal community and to provide needed continuing education and advanced training to practicing scientists.


The National Forensic Science Technology Center (NFSTC), a new FIU campus located in Largo, Florida, works with laboratory, law enforcement and military professionals to improve forensic science practice in the US and around the world. NFSTC@FIU has the experience and expertise to improve quality and performance in almost any forensic discipline.
