"Don't ask why - ask how!" In memoriam of Chris Hawes Hon FRMS
This symposium is to honour the life, work and legacy of the late Professor Chris Hawes and to share memories from over four decades of his contributions to plant cell biology and microscopy.
Federica Brandizzi, Verena Kriechbaumer, Ulla Neumann, Béatrice Satiat-Jeunemaitre & Allison Winton
If you would like to contribute to this symposium, please scroll down for further information.
We would like to produce an e-booklet composed of A4 PDF posters from attendees and non-attendees who knew, worked with or admired Chris and his work. This will be collated into a 'story-book' and made available to attendees.
The A4 contribution may be based either on scientific collaborations with Chris and/or sharing fond memories.
Deadline for submission is Wednesday the 30th October. Please send your A4 poster in PDF format by email to Verena Kriechbaumer.
From these submissions, a number of flash presentations may be selected for the meeting. Please indicate in your email if you would be willing to present your contribution as a flash talk.
