Passing of Peter Schneider

It is with great sadness that we announce the unfortunate passing of our friend and colleague Peter M. Schneider of Cologne, Germany. Peter greeted everyone with kind words and was a dear friend to many throughout our international community. He has been the heart and soul of the International Society for Forensic Genetics for the past quarter century and served in almost every role as a dedicated ISFG Board member, most recently as secretary. In spite of chronic illness for the past two decades, he continued to give his all in service to others. Multiple European consortium and multi-center grants, such as SNPforID, EuroForGen, and VISAGE, owe their existence to his persistence and scientific leadership. We will miss him, his wisdom, and his insights. May we honor him by going forward and seeking to share our friendship and fellowship with each other as he has done and would like us to continue to do.
