Hörsaal B 01.027, Biozentrum Großhaderner Str. 2 82152 Planegg-Martinsried

Speaker: Prof. Nitin Phadnis, Ph.D.

Chair: Prof. Dr. Axel Imhof (LMU)

Nitin Phadnis is Professor at the School of Biological Sciences of the University of Utah. His research is focused on the genetic and molecular basis of genetic conflicts and speciation. In particular, he is interested in understanding the role of genetic conflict involving segregation distorters as a driving force in the evolution of new species. He is part of the CAS Research Focus Group “The Evolution of Incompatibilities. Molecular Mechanisms of Speciation” and currently Visiting Fellow at CAS.

A registration is required. You can find more information on the CAS website.

The Center for Advanced Studies at LMU provides a forum for scientific exchange and discussion that bridges the divide between the established disciplines. Its activities are designed to promote all forms of collaborative research and to stimulate interdisciplinary communication within the University. In addition, it facilitates the integration of visiting scholars and scientists into the academic life of the University.
