Chinese Speaking Working Group

In memory of Peter M. Schneider (1955-2022)

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Peter M. Schneider. He is our dear friend and colleague. He is not only the soul of the International Society for Forensic Genetics, but also our mentor and friend. For 30 years, many Chinese scholars have studied and worked in his laboratories, including in the Universities of Mainz and Cologne in Germany. Under his guidance and help, everyone has benefited a lot, and many of them have grown into academic leaders and academic backbones after returning to China. He also visited universities and forensic DNA laboratories in China and developed a deep friendship with us. We will miss him, his wisdom and his insight. We will follow his example and honor him by moving forward and sharing our friendship.
Membership of the Chinese Speaking Working Group (CSWG) is open to all Chinese speaking members of the ISFG. There will be no other membership fee in addition to that payable to the ISFG. Aims of the Chinese Speaking Working Group are:
  • exchange of experiences, working on quality control, and stimulation of cooperation between the members,
  • sharing scientific knowledge and findings in the field of interest,
  • development of educational opportunities in forensic genetics in China.
The board administering the CSWG is responsible for organizing the meetings of the group. The board represents the working group.
