WELCOME TO THE LMME

The aim of our research group is to understand the dependency between environmental cues (e.g. light, temperature, tide) that underlie circadian and other rhythms in symbiotic marine organisms, reef-building corals as well as other Cnidarians – such as sea anemones, in regulating physiology and behavior. Corals serve as our dominant model system to investigate the dependency between two clock-system associations, coral and symbiotic algae, or non- associations in a simple multicellular organism, on the physiological and molecular levels. In addition our lab studies tidal rhythmicity in other animals such as limpets (marine snails), as well as other wide ranging topics of behavioural and genetic interest in the marine realm.
