People at NeCEN

The NeCEN is managed and operated by a team of seven persons: a director (Bram Koster) and scientists that are advanced cryo electron microscope operators with different roles and specialties. The team of scientists running the facility currently includes Christoph Diebolder, Ludovic Renault, Roman Koning, Julio Ortiz and Bart Alewijnse. The NeCEN program manager is Susanne Roodhuyzen.  

In addition, power users that are closely affiliated with NeCEN are present, in particular, the Leiden Institute of Biology (Marin van Heel, Ariane Briegel).
