In 1990, he joined the National Board of Forensic Medicine, Department of Forensic Toxicology located in Linköping, Sweden. Dr Kronstrand has more than 20 years of experience in the fields of postmortem toxicology, DUID, DFSA and drug testing in various matrices. His research has covered a wide range of topics over the years, including opiate toxicity and analytical toxicology with focus on the incorporation of drugs into hair. Over the last 10 years, LC-MS-MS as a technique has been another focus of his research. Dr Kronstrand has been engaged as a teacher at the Faculty of Health Sciences, lecturer at the masters programs in chemistry and forensic science at Linköping University and has been advisor to students in medicine, biology and chemistry and is currently supervising three PhD students. He is a member of several scientific organizations including AAFS, TIAFT, SOFT and SoHT.
Simon Hudson - Keynote Speaker 'Competitive Sport & Drug Testing'
Simon Hudson has over 25 years in human and animal doping control developing and using methods based on primarily on GCMS and LCMS. More recently he was reposonsible for the introduction of high resolution accurate mass LCMS to HFL. His current interests/work beyond the daily delivery of a comprehensive anti doping service include the analysis and identification of street drugs and synthetic cannabinoids, pooled urine testing for drugs of abuse in various human sub populations and the development of data processing strategies for HRAM LCMS.
Professor David Osselton - Keynote Speaker 'Quality Standards in Forensic Science'
Professor David Osselton joined the UK Forensic Science Service in 1974 and became Head of Drugs, Alcohol and Toxicology Research at the Home Office Central Research Establishment in Aldermaston in 1984.
