President Yoweri Museveni has welcomed a proposal by the Nebraska Institute of Forensic Sciences in the United States of America for the establishment of a National Institute of Forensic Sciences in Uganda.

He said the government will avail the land on which to construct the institute on a leasehold basis but with performance conditions which shall be reviewed from time to time.

The President was Monday meeting a team of experts from the Nebraska institute of Forensic Sciences led by team leader and chairman of the board Dr. Matthias Okoye a forensic pathologist at State House Entebbe.

According to Dr. Okoye, the institute will attract students, scholars and key members of the medical and law enforcement fields from around the world for training and research.

The proposed institute will train students in DNA analysis, forensic biology and serology, crime scene investigations and forensic autopsy among others. The facility will also house a clinic- kidney Dialysis Center.

The Nebraska Institute of Forensic Sciences, Inc. was established to provide educational and research programmes in the fields of forensic sciences and medicine.
