Maria Lois will succeed José Luis Riechmann as CRAG Director on the 1st of February
Last December, CRAG’s Board of Trustees appointed the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) Scientist L. Maria Lois as the new director of the Centre. This appointment comes after an international selection process coordinated by the CERCA Institution, and with the participation of CRAG’s External Scientific Advisory Board. Lois will take office on the 1st of February.
L. Maria Lois will be the third director of CRAG succeeding José Luis Riechmann, who has been director from early 2013 and will remain at CRAG as a Research Group Leader, and Pere Puigdomènech, who was the founder director. Lois will be one of the very few women directors of the Catalan CERCA Research Centres and Spanish “Severo Ochoa Centres of Excellence”.
