MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia University professor has been named to the National Commission on Forensic Science.

WVU says associate chemistry professor Suzanne Bell is one of 35 members of the first such advisory panel who were chosen from among more than 300 applicants.

The commission will work to develop guidance on forensic science work involving the criminal justice system.

It also will work on policy recommendations for the U.S. attorney general that include uniform codes of conduct and requirements for formal training and certification.

Among the other members of the commission are members of law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, defense attorneys, forensic science service providers and researchers.
