A Team Effort

To Go One Step Further

At the EELab, we are interested in studying the cause-effect relationships between environmental stressors resulting from global and climate change and the subsequent epigenetic mechanisms regulating physiological responses in marine life.

What makes us different

Skills, Knowledge
and Creative Thinking

The training potential of the EELab is extraordinary. Besides state-of-the-art research, our work promotes critical skills for our future scientific careers, including leadership, independent thinking, collaborative work, and collegiality.
