DynaMo Advisory Board – University of Copenhagen

DynaMo Center Scientific Advisory Board

The DynaMo Center Scientific Advisory Board is comprised of four internationally leading experts within the field of DynaMo's research. All are carefully chosen based on their distinct and complementary expertises. During 2016-17 the DynaMo Advisory Board was renewed; the new members are:

Professor Chris Hawes

Department of Biological and Medical Sciences, Oxford Brookes University


Professor Hawes' research focuses on on the structure and dynamics of the plant endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus. His leading expertise within live imaging is of great importance to DynaMo.
