We have been involved in project proposal for a call from the EU. The RISEN consortium deals with the development and implementation of on-site analysis and qualification of forensic traces.

Our paper on the use of proteomics of for the analysis of changes in proteins over time has been published in Nature Sci. Rep. The open access paper can be found here. Maarten Keulemans (Volkskrant) interviewed me on the study and the effects it may have in criminal investigations, you can read (in Dutch!) the interview here. Following that Editie NL made a short item, which you can find on their website.

‘Every contact leaves a trace.’ are the famous words of Edmond Locard, referring to the possibility to obtain information on what has happened in the past, at a certain location, leading up to a criminal act. All sorts of traces can be used to reconstruct events prior to an event.

In the past few years, we have been working, in collaboration with different universities and forensic institutes, on the analysis of different endogenous and exogenous materials from fingerprints. The results of these studies can be found here.
