National Academy of Sciences (NAS)

Grant Information

Year Awarded
Dana Frontiers

The Foundation supported the NAS workshop series to guide development of materials to help judges in considering scientific evidence. Outcomes included the design of educational materials intended to improve judges’ use and consideration of science in managing cases involving scientific and technological evidence worldwide. The workshop contributed to large-scale global efforts based on initiatives in the US and United Kingdom that have helped to equip judges with the understanding to engage with experts who can inform the court on scientific issues in dispute, such as genetics, neuroforensics, and disease causation.

The National Academy of Sciences is a private not-for-profit society of distinguished scholars charged with providing independent, objective advice to the nation on matters related to science and technology.
