    Our nation needs a strategy for staffing forensic scientists in public forensic laboratories.

New automation technologies can be leveraged to increase the capacities of our laboratories, and while construction of new laboratories is essential, the most difficult challenge ahead is the shortage of intellectual capital needed to staff our laboratories.
