Consanguinity In A Global Context

December 16, 2021 - 2PM CET (KSA: 4PM – UAE: 5PM)

Occurrence of Consanguinity globally

Consanguinity is a phenomenon known in many parts of the world as a tradition deeply anchored in the culture of the given population.

Genetic background and diseases of the offspring

Dr. Förster will explain the mechanisms behind the increased occurrence of genetic diseases due to consanguineous behavior and its effects on children.

Economic implications of consanguinity

Does consanguinity have an impact on the economy of a country? Dr. Förster will elaborate on the connection with examples.

Solutions of Arcensus

Dr. Förster will provide detailed insights about the activities of Arcensus to tackle this global problem.

Consanguinity, the marriage between relatives from the same family, is a major reason for a significantly higher frequency of genetic diseases in specific populations.

During this webinar, Dr. Toni Förster, a scientist with long-lasting experience in global clinical studies, will highlight the following:

Toni is experienced in executing observational Clinical Studies. Currently, he has been working with the team of Prof. Rolfs for three years. He started his career in Life Sciences in Leipzig, Germany, where he completed his Bachelor's and Master's thesis in Biochemistry. In 2013 he then moved to Jena/Germany to conduct his Ph.D. thesis on the pathomechanisms of fungal pathogens. Here, he was involved in discovering and characterizing Candidalysin, the first known toxin of the human fungal pathogen Candida albicans. In 2019, Toni moved to Rostock and started his work in clinical research. He gathered knowledge on the execution of studies worldwide and successfully published articles about innovative genetic screening and biomarker studies. Since beginning 2021, he joined Arcensus and is a essential part of the team organizing and conducting diagnostic trips in consanguineous regions.
