Research interests

Examination of skeletal muscles in fish

  • Examination of the key processes in skeletal muscle development from embryo to adult fish
  • Investigation of meat quality in economically important species
  • Establishment of in vitro test systems from various tissues of different fish species

Professional Activities

Myogenesis in evolution: We will analyse possible similarities and differences of myogenesis in evolutionary diverse fish lineages.

Third-party projects:

Fish flesh quality: Establishment of sensory, physico-chemical and chemical measurement techniques for the supervision and the comparison of fish fillet in local fish species.

Third-party projects:

Establishment of cell cultures from fish tissue e.g. for the investigation of the effects of climate change on cell physiology
