Niall sits on a number of international advisory boards and panels including the Strategic Advisory Board of the Joint Programming Initiative on Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans).

Professor Kazuhiro Kogure

Professor Kazuhiro Kogure is the Director of the Center for Earth Surface System Dynamics, and Head of Marine Microbiology, Marine Ecosystem Dynamics, at the Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute, Japan. He has pioneered developments of new techniques to study microbes, bacteria in particular, from native aquatic environments, including research on the measurement of metabolically active fractions of marine bacteria, genome analyses of the deep-sea, and offshore strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which incidentally bear remarkable genotypic similarity with well know human pathogenic/clinical strains. His leading research on elucidation substrate capture mechanisms in native bacteria, microbiology of submicron particles, and very recently, characterization of proteorhodopsin in surface dwelling bacterial flora, have earned him, and his team at the Ocean Research Institute, the prestige as highly significant contributions in the arena of marine microbiology.
