Science on Trial, Inc. specializes in evaluating forensic science in criminal and medicolegal malpractice cases, offering support both pre-trial and post-conviction. Our meticulous pre-trial evaluations of forensic evidence serve to ensure that the scientific basis for your case is robust and reliable.

This work is vitally important in identifying new or overlooked evidence that may mean the difference between a life behind bars and exoneration.
In addition to case reviews, Sarrita Adams and the team provide bespoke education programs for legal professionals. These programs aim to bridge the gap between science and law, minimizing misinterpretation and misuse of scientific evidence in court. We are currently developing an interactive seminar series that aims to equip legal professionals with a robust understanding of scientific methodologies and their correct application. By fostering a better understanding between the realms of science and law, we hope to minimize the chances of misinterpretation and misuse of scientific evidence.
At the core of our innovation is the development of our Forensic Biotech Tools (FBT) platform. Under Sarrita Adams’ guidance, we are focused on creating groundbreaking forensic biology kits that will transform the autopsy process and enhance the determination of causes of death. By leveraging molecular biology, data analytics, and machine learning, we strive to standardize and improve the accuracy of forensic investigations, thereby upholding our commitment to justice and preventing wrongful convictions.
