With over 90 peer-reviewed articles in leading journals, Dr. Logan is recognized as a thought leader who makes a significant and positive difference.

Dr. Robert Middleberg is Vice President, Quality Assurance Laboratory Director & Forensic Toxicologist at NMS Labs. He will receive the Rolla N. Harger award for his leadership and contributions to forensic toxicology. Dr. Middleberg is an Adjunct Member of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Thomas Jefferson University where he teaches graduate and medical students. He serves on the Board of Directors for The American Board of Forensic Toxicology and the American Board of Clinical Chemistry, the Toxicology Resource Committee for the College of American Pathologists, and chairs the Scientific Working Group in Forensic Toxicology (SWGTOX). His membership in many professional organizations includes The Society of Forensic Toxicologists, The American Association of Clinical Chemists, and The American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

Dr. Sherri Kacinko, a Forensic Toxicologist at NMS Labs will also be recognized for her contributions to the field. Dr. Kacinko will receive the Irving Sunshine Award for her research and early career achievement in forensic toxicology. Dr. Kacinko joined NMS Labs in 2008 after graduating from the University of Maryland. In addition to her work at NMS Labs, Dr. Kacinko is an Adjunct Professor of chemistry at Arcadia University. Prior to arriving at NMS Labs, Dr. Kacinko worked for the National Institute on Drug Abuse and for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement as a forensic chemist. She is a member of The Society of Forensic Toxicologists, The American Academy of Forensic Sciences and The International Society of Forensic Toxicologists.

AAFS is the premier forensic science professional organization in the United States, with more than 7,000 members in 11 disciplines. The organization offers a professional framework for education and professional development and provides a voice for the forensic sciences in policy and legal issues at the national level.
