Black Female Professor Awarded $324,000 For Future Studies
DR. CANDICE Bridge, the University of Central Florida’s first black female chemistry instructor, has received a prestigious grant to study rape-investigation methods.
Atlanta Black Star reports that Dr. Bridge received $324,000 from the National Institute of Justice to review methods for catching suspects of sexual-assault crimes outside of DNA evidence. The grant will give Bridge access to exclusive tools utilised by the FBI and government laboratories.
In a statement, Dr. Bridge said: “This grant will enable us to conduct research into a unique new means of identifying perpetrators of sexual assault when traditional DNA evidence doesn’t exist.”
