Division Board

The Division Board is keen to welcome new members. It especially seeks to recruit younger scientists ready to make their debut on the international stage; or individuals who are keen to organise an activity such as a workshop or specialist symposium, or to contribute to the EFB European Congresses of Biotechnology. The current membership, and their responsibilities, are listed below. The Division co-Chairs (Louise Horsfall and Cecilia A Roque) would be pleased to hear from others who are keen to become involved in helping with the organisation of Division activities.
