Isabel Bäurle is an Assistant Professor at the University of Potsdam, Germany. Her current interests range from transcriptional memory in response to environmental stress to transposon and RNA silencing. Having previously worked on plant stem cells and flowering time, she has a background in plant developmental genetics, molecular biology and epigenetics.
Professor of Biology at the University of Antwerp. Member of the Flemish Science Foundation review board. Editor of the journals Journal of Plant Research, Frontiers in Plant Science and PLOS ONE
Professor of Developmental Biology in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Department of Plant Sciences, Wageningen University, The Netherlands.
I am currently a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Cell Walls, based at the University of Adelaide. I undertook my PhD at the John Innes Centre, Norwich. My expertise is in the areas of plant molecular biology particularly as it relates to cell wall biosynthesis, re-modeling and degradation and how these impact cereal end use quality. I also have an interest in the development and application of novel experimental methods for transcript profiling and gene discovery.

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.
Craine received his BS from The Ohio State University and his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2000. He has co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed scientific publications and a book with Princeton University Press, The Resource Strategies of Wild Plants. He has worked on a variety of topics from plant traits to soil organic matter dynamics to bison performance to nutrient limitation of plant growth. Since 2014 he has helped lead a private company Jonah Ventures.
