Brendan Bohannan at the Humboldt-Reception in Berlin
Humboldt Research Award Winner Professor Brendan Bohannan from the University of Oregon in Eugene is currently on a research stay at Kiel University. In close cooperation with colleagues at Kiel Life Science he will deepen his research on microbial ecology and evolution. The Oregon scientist and university lecturer investigates ecological and evolutionary principles that govern microbial communities in various animal and plant hosts. His field of work strongly overlaps with various research consortia at Kiel University, especially the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1182 “Origin and Function of Metaorganisms” and the various evolutionary initiatives affiliated to the Kiel Evolution Center (KEC).
On 22 and 23 June, the Humboldt Foundation’s Annual Meeting and reception with Federal President Steinmeier took place. More than 600 international researchers, among them Bohannan, gathered in Berlin for this festive event.
