The Forensic Sciences Foundation (FSF) is proud to announce that Tori L. Schaffer, BS, has been awarded the 2022–23 FSF Jan S. Bashinski Criminalistics Graduate Thesis Assistance Grant for her paper, Separation of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide and its Analogs by High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography. The grant consists of $1,850, a plaque, complimentary meeting registration at a future AAFS meeting, and up to $1,400 for travel and per diem expenses toward the future meeting attendance.
Tori is a master’s student in the forensic science program at Cedar Crest College. She holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Weber State University. Her graduate research focuses on using high-performance thin-layer chromatography to separate lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and LSD analogs.
And a big thank you to the FSF Bashinski Committee—Lucy Davis (Chair), Sandra Sachs (Co-Chair), Patrick Buzzini, and Steven Lee.
