About the Author

The Editor, born in 1964, Lemvig, Denmark,received his PhD in Physics in 1993 from the Technical University of Denmark. After several research positions, among which a postdoctoral fellowship at the Weill Medical College, Cornell University (1995-2000), he became an associate professor at the Technical University of Denmark. Currently he is the Research Director at Aquaporin, Lyngby, Denmark.
