Dr. Michael Baird has decades of experience in the field of DNA testing.
In 1982, he was at the forefront of DNA testing as part of a team that pioneered DNA identity testing, eventually offering it on a commercial scale.
In 1987, he was the first DNA expert to testify in a U.S. court case and has since testified in hundreds of court cases involving DNA and forensics—his most high-profile case was as DNA expert in the paternity case involving Anna Nicole Smith’s daughter, Dannielynn.
NBC News hired him as their on-air DNA expert during the OJ Simpson trial. He has also been interviewed on Larry King Live, Nancy Grace, Court TV, and others.
