George M. Coupland

Director of the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research, Cologne, Germany. Recipient of several honours, the most recent being election to the National Academy, USA in 2012.

Keith A Crandall

Keith A. Crandall, PhD is the founding Director of the Computational Biology Institute at George Washington University. Professor Crandall studies the computational biology, population genetics, and bioinformatics, developing and testing of Big Data methods DNA sequence analysis. He applies such methods to the study of the evolution of both infectious diseases (especially HIV) and crustaceans (especially crayfish). Professor Crandall has published over 260 peer reviewed publications, as well as three books. He has been a Fulbright Visiting Scholar to Oxford University and an Allen Wilson Centre Sabbatical Fellow at the University of Auckland. Professor Crandall has received a number of awards for research and teaching, including the American Naturalist Society Young Investigator Award, an NSF CAREER Award, a PhRMA Foundation Faculty Development Award in Bioinformatics, Honors Professor of the Year award at Brigham Young University, ISI Highly Cited Researcher, and the Edward O. Wilson Naturalist Award. He was also recently elected a Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London. Professor Crandall earned his BA degree from Kalamazoo College in Biology and Mathematics, an MA degree from Washington University in Statistics, and a PhD from Washington University School of Medicine in Biology and Biomedical Sciences. He also served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Puyo, Ecuador.

William A Cresko

Professor of Biology and Associate Vice President for Research at the University of Oregon. Research focuses on the genetics and genomics of evolutionary change. Elected Fellow, AAAS.

Natasha de Vere

Head of Conservation and Research at the National Botanic Garden of Wales and Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) at Aberystwyth University.

Elizabeth S. Dennis

CSIRO Fellow. Distinguished professor, University of technology, Sydney, Past Chairman of the Multinational Arabidopsis Genome Project. Past President of the Australian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, winner Prime Minister's prize for Science.

Jocelyne DiRuggiero

Associate professor of Biology and Earth and Planetary Sciences; member of the Center for Astrophysical Sciences; co-founder and director of the Institute for Planets and Life. We use extremophiles to address fundamental questions in biology, in particular mechanisms underlying the diversity of microbial communities, their functioning, and their responses to environmental perturbations. At the molecular level, we use archaeal model systems to investigate adaptive mechanisms to environmental stresses.

Pascal Dollé

Associate Professor in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Group leader (Developmental Biology and Stem Cells Department), IGBMC, France. Member of the Institut Universitaire de France.
