About the Presenter
Prof. Dr. Lutz Roewer studied biochemistry at the University of Leipzig (Germany) and received his Ph.D. degree for molecular biology at the Humboldt-University Berlin (Germany) in 1991. Dr. Roewer is presently associate professor for forensic genetics at the Institute of Legal Medicine, Humboldt-University Berlin (Germany) and director of the Department of Forensic Genetics at this institute. He worked as guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Psychiatrics in Munich and the Kitasato University in Tokyo.
Dr. Roewer works as a forensic expert since 1987. His scientific background comprises molecular genetic studies on hypervariable sequences in human and non-human DNA, forensic and kinship analysis, population genetics and bioinformatics. He is specialized in the field of Y-Chromosome genetics and its forensic, genealogical and anthropological applications. He is currently curator of the Y Chromosome Haplotype Reference Database (YHRD).
Dr. Roewer is member of the International Society of Forensic Genetics and received 1999 the ISFG Biennial Award for his work on the forensic application of Y-chromosomal DNA polymorphisms. He is member of the editorial boards of the journals International Journal of Legal Medicine and Forensic Science International: Genetics. Since 2014 he is member of the SWGDAM Y-STR committee.
Dr. Roewer authored more than 100 peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals, and publishes regularly reviews and chapters in text books.
