IBioBA's Board of Trustees


The Board of Trustees establishes ties to the general public, particularly to those circles interested in the research performed at the Institute and to other potentially interested circles. The Board also liaises on behalf of the Institute, promotes interaction between the Institute and the general public, and increases the confidence of the general public in the work of autonomously organized research.
