ADVISORY COMMITTEEADVISORY COMMITTEE

Essential to the successful running of GARNet is the GARNet Advisory Committee, which links GARNet to the community and keeps us up to date with the day to day experiences and issue of researchers. The committee currently consists of 10 elected members, who contribute their time on a voluntary basis. The committee provides GARNet with an oversight body that ensures direct community input to GARNet’s strategy and actions.

Each member serves a term of three years and annual elections are held in November/December to elect new members. The committee is elected from the community to represent and serve the needs of the community. If you would like to know more about becoming a GARNet committee member please get in touch.

In addition to the elected members the committee also includes the GARNet PI (Jim Murray), GARNet Coordinators (Ruth Bastow, Geraint Parry) and two ex-offico members; Sean May and Sabina Leonelli.

From time to time the GARNet Committee receives requests for letters of support for community resource grants. Information regarding letters of support can be found here.

Geraint join the GARNet team as full time National Coordinator in May 2015. Previously we was a lecturer of Genetics and Plant Science at the University of Liverpool where we led a small research group investigating the role of nuclear transport in Arabidopsis development. 

Geraint undertook his PhD in the lab of Malcolm Bennett at the University of Nottingham research the auxin tranpprt protein AUX1. Subsequently he undertook post-doctoral research at Indiana University in the labs of Mark Estelle and Scott Michaels. Therefore he has been involved in the Arabidpsis research community for his entire career and is looking forward to the fresh challenge that the GARNet post will bring as he serves as an advocate for Arabidopsis research in the UK and around the world.
