Scientific Advisory Board

Our Scientific Advisory Board includes world-leading experts in oligonucleotide chemistry. The SAB is supporting our research and training, and keeps an overview of our achievements, milestones and deliverables. The SAB will also ensure the quality standards of the individual personal development plans at the start of the ETN and check their implementation by yearly revision and approval.
