               n important part of the Lancashire Forensic Science Academy is the continuous focus on                           research. 

Some of our research projects completed in collaboration with the University of Central Lancashire, have contributed to the operational excellence of policing, scientific support and forensic sciences. At The Lancashire Forensic Science Academy, we are proud to pioneer some research projects that potentially inspire scholars to consider undertaking further studies and excel in their fields while contributing to the challenges of forensic science and related subjects.

Our research environment gathers Masters, Doctoral students, externally funded researchers, and independent self-funded researchers who develop projects, and contribute to the emerging areas central to the Academy. Our freestanding projects at the advanced level allow researchers to incorporate their educational background into research-based insights into practical excellence of operations in policing, government and public sector partners.
The character of many of our projects is experimental and exploratory, and aims to establish strong partnerships between education, research, public sector and the Lancashire Forensic Science Academy.
