iGENEA - since 2003
iGENEA offers a platform for an interdisciplinary origin research. The latest achievements in genetics are combined with research findings from anthropology and history.
Dipl.-Jur. Roman C. Scholz
Dipl.-Jur., Roman C. Scholz has been a genealogist for many years. He has traced his family tree back to 1570. Roman C. Scholz realised that he could make use of DNA testing for his genealogical research early on. He is now one of the world's few experts in the field of DNA surname research and general DNA genealogy.
Dipl. Biol. Joëlle Apter (M.Sc.)
Dipl. Biol. Joëlle Apter completed her master's degree in genetics and anthropology at the University of Zurich in 2003. She was interested in the Polish/Jewish origins of her ancestors from a very early stage (the name 'Apter' comes from 'Opatow'). Joëlle Apter founded iGENEA in 2006.
Dr. sci. Tamara Brown (PhD), Member of the Scientific Advisory Board
Dr Tamara Brown completed her master's degree in molecular genetics in 1999. An interest in general behaviour and the science behind behavioural patterns caused her to move to Basel in Switzerland to study neurobiology. She completed her PhD thesis in April 2005 with the distinction 'summa cum laude'. Dr Brown advises iGENEA in scientific matters.
Professor Reinhard Renneberg, Member of the Scientific Advisory Board
Professor Reinhard Renneberg is a lecturer at the Department of Chemistry in the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Professor Reinhard Renneberg advises iGENEA in scientific matters. He has also published various trials carried out internally at iGENEA.
