Elaine Pagliaro, assistant executive director of the Henry C. Lee Institute of Forensic Science and adjunct professor in the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences, won a 2014 Connecticut Women of Innovation award in the academic and leadership category.

She received the award last month at the tenth annual Connecticut Women of Innovation Awards Banquet sponsored by the Connecticut Technology Council.

“The Council honors Connecticut’s extraordinary and talented women that represent a cross section of Connecticut’s most important technology companies and educational institutions in Connecticut,” said Bruce Carlson, acting president and CEO of the Connecticut Technology Council.

During her nearly 30-year career, Pagliaro served as assistant director of Connecticut’s forensic science laboratory in the Department of Public Safety and as supervising criminalist in the Connecticut State Police Forensic Laboratory. She also served as a senior research associate in the UNH forensic science department.

In addition to her master’s degree in forensic science from UNH, she holds a bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry from St. Joseph University and a law degree from Quinnipiac University.
