Laszlo Bogre is a full Professor in Plant Cell and Molecular Biology at the School of Biological Sciences, Royal Holloway, University of London, United Kingdom. He obtained his B.Sc degree in agricultural sciences from Godollo University, Hungary and his Ph.D. in Biology from the Biological Research Centre, Szeged, Hungary. His research pioneered the mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathways in plants and the regulation of the cell cycle. His current research is focused on studying growth signaling networks using the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana.
Gerrit T.S. Beemster is a group leader at the department of Plant Systems Biology at the Flemish Institute for Biotechnology (VIB) and the University of Gent, Belgium. He obtained his B.Sc degree in horticultural science from Wageningen University, The Netherlands and his Ph.D. in Plant Science from the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. His research pioneered the implementation of kinematic analyses for the analysis of cell division and cell expansion in growing organs, including primary roots and leaves of Arabidopsis thaliana and several species of monocotyledonous leaves, the use of profiling techniques to study growth process specific expression patterns and the development of dynamic growth models based on experimentally obtained data.
