The JDI Centre for the Forensic Sciences is managed by the Centre Director Dr Ruth Morgan, and the Centre Administrator Kirstie Hampson. In addition, the Centre benefits from the expertise and support of a steering group and an external advisory board, each of which meets at least twice a year to discuss progress and future developments.
