Our Scientific Advisory Board

Representing a variety of disciplines in imaging research, our Scientific Advisory Board is the scientific operational body responsible for defining our long-term scientific strategies. The SAB advises us in all scientific matters and plays a key role in the preparation of funding proposals and the implementation of EU-funded projects.
