Research interests

Our research focuses on the functional and structural characterization of genes and signal cascades in bony fish involved in the principals of adaptation under environmental stress. Within this field, we mainly investigate the regulatory mechanisms involved in the stress response of teleost fish in response to e.g. temperature fluctuations, crowding stress and infection pressure.
