Burkhard Jandrig gained his degree in biochemistry from the University of Leipzig. From 1982 until 1991 he was a research associate and group leader at the Institute of Cancer Research Berlin, working in the areas of chemical carcinogenesis and multidrug resistance. From 1992 through 2010 he held the same positions at the Max-Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin. His research activities are in the fields of molecular carcinogenesis, tumor genetics, tumor virology and bioethics.
Gary Marchant is the Lincoln Professor of Emerging Technologies, Law and Ethics at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, where he is also a professor of life sciences and executive director of the Center for Law, Science & Innovation. Professor Marchant teaches and researches in the subject areas of environmental law, risk assessment and risk management, genetics and the law, biotechnology law, food and drug law, legal aspects of nanotechnology, and law, sciences and technology.
Holger Schütz studied educational sciences at the Technical University of Braunschweig. From 1986 to 1990 he worked at the Institute of Psychology, Technical University of Berlin, and has been at the Research Center Jülich since 1990. His research focuses on risk perception and risk communication, comparative assessment of environmental health risks, and evidence assessment.
Peter Wiedemann is a psychologist and professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, teaches at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, and a former president of the Society of Risk Analysis, Europe. His research and teaching activities focus on risk perception, risk communication, and precautionary risk management, as well as on risk and sustainability issues.
