Microbial Ecophysiology

The Microbial Ecophysiology group at the University of Bremen is part of the Bremen Marine Ecology Centre for Research & Education (BreMarE) and associated with MARUM, Center for Marine Environmental Sciences. Our main research interests are anaerobic microbial processes in sediments and soils, and the functional biodiversity of microorganisms involved.


EMBO short term fellowship for Christina Pavloudi (16.3.2016).
Congratulations, Christina! We are looking forward to your stay in our lab. Christina (Hellenic Centre for Marine Research , Crete) is a PhD Candidate in the MARES Joint Doctoral Programme on Marine Ecosystem Health & Conservation.
