Discover contributions to forensic science. Read their stories. Share your own!

Forensic science has attracted a lot of attention both on the entertainment screen and in the real world. Whether it's the often-grisly crimes solved in episodes of CSI or the FBI being tasked with the 2001 Amerithrax (Anthrax) Investigation, forensic science touches our communities in many ways. 

As a company that's dedicated to advancing the science of human identification and forensics, together with its mission of making improvements in life possible, QIAGEN is uniquely positioned to convene and catalyze young investigators with a passion for forensic science.

We have launched our Investigator blog and community to showcase the contributions of the talented and passionate scientists and graduate students with the aim of amplifying the impact of their work as well as recognizing their achievements.

We want you to inspire others and admire your own accomplishments! Please fill out the application form* and get featured in our blog series.
