Nov 2018: ERC Consolidator Grant for Kristin Tessmar-Raible

Kristin Tessmar-Raible has received an ERC Consolidator Grant worth about two million euros to study the mechanics marine organisms use to establish monthly rhythms based on the moon cycles. She will use the grant to investigate how the highly variable natural environmental conditions compare with those in the laboratory and to identify key molecules responsible for establishing and upholding the circalunar clock of organisms such as the bristle worm Platynereis dumerilii and the midge Clunio marinus.

Professor Kristin Tessmar-Raible, University of Vienna, Austria, Fellowship: 2001-2003
