There is a need to provide basic and advanced training in forensic toxicology for forensic science personnel in criminal and clinical laboratories.  This training will include an overview of toxicology as it relates to forensic science and discuss interpretation of analytical findings.  Further, advanced courses are planned that will address specific topics in the area of forensic toxicology, such as:

  • Method Development and Validation in Forensic and Clinical Toxicology
  • Driving under the Influence (DUI)
  • Driving under the Influence of Drugs (DUID)
  • Toxicological Aspects of Designer Drugs
  • Drugs of Abuse in the Forensic Setting
  • Pain Management

Currently, the instrumentation and techniques anticipated for these courses include immunoassay devices, gas chromatograph mass spectrometers (GC/MS) and liquid chromatograph mass spectrometers (LC/MS).  Specific courses related to method development and validation of both tandem and accurate mass LC/MS methods are anticipated.

The FTTL Training Lab includes a dedicated state-of-the-art LC/MS/MS instrument (Shimadzu 8030 LCMS with Nexera LC system).
