Organisation profile

The Marine Biology expertise group started in 2023 and aims to further promote marine biological research in Groningen and to support the ongoing leadership and teaching that its members already provide for the Marine Biology Master’s Degree program at RUG. Establishing their own expertise group has allowed Marine Biology researchers to form larger collaborations due to a close working environment and shared facilities.

Current members have expertise in a wide range of biological fields including conservation/restoration biology, evolutionary and conservation genomics, (eco)physiology of microalgae and animal/algae symbioses, climate-change research, zoology, systematics, genetic analyses of ancient and historic materials, and ecology, which are to be applied to larger projects that require a range of methodologies and approaches. Research is done in all regions of the world’s oceans; from the tropics to the poles. The collaborations that are forming will allow GELIFES to consolidate its position as a formidable institution conducting marine biological research in the Netherlands.
