C-IN continues with achievements in forensic sciences.

C-IN is glad that shortly after the major event in forensic sciences, EAFS 2015, we can announce yet another achievement in this field. Together with doc. Jiří Drábek from Palacký University Olomouc and University Hospital Olomouc, a C-IN team member presented in Krakow in front of the board of the International Society for Forensic Genetics (ISFG). The candidacy was successful, therefore the Prague Congress Centre will host the biennial meeting of ISFG with more than 700 delegates in September 2019. C-IN will provide all PCO services.

The ISFG was founded in Mainz, Germany by a group of dedicated blood group serologists in 1968 under the name of "Society for Forensic Haemogenetics", to address the growing knowledge about polymorphic markers in human blood and their use in paternity testing. Due to the overwhelming success of DNA-based molecular genetic typing methods, the name was changed again in 1999 to include the more general term "genetics".  

Today, this international association represents more than 1100 members from over 50 countries from academic and government laboratories, as well as from private companies. Their expertise includes molecular genetics, blood group serology, mathematics and biostatistics, as well as legal matters ranging from criminal law to medical ethics. Together with a rich scientific program and interesting international exhibitors, the ISFG meeting will be one of the congress peaks in 2019, both for C-IN and for Prague.
