State Forensics Lab

Forensics Lab

on the corner of Norman Bridge and Carter Hill Roads, was completed recently. It anchors the SW corner of the ASU campus, and signals the conclusion of a political struggle that extended over a decade. For years Forensics was the underfunded stepchild of State government, and had to choose between the RSA and Alabama State as its big brother. RSA, a long-time political champion of Forensics, felt the agency would make a good fit for the existing medical laboratories left behind by St Margaret’s Hospital.  ASU wanted it as a pawn in its campus expansion and grant machinery. One day early in this century, it fell my lot to tell Forensics it was time to choose. Guess who won.
