Visitors

  • We would like to thank Prof T.D. Williams from Simon Fraser University for hosting F Criscuolo for two weeks, working on Vancouver starlings’ colony and on data collected in 2013 and 2015 where telomere length of adults and chicks have been measured at the IPHC. This is part of a PICS funded collaboration (2014-2017).

Congratulation

  • Jeff Roth successfully acquired a Chateaubriand fellowship to join the EPE for a period of 8 months. He will be working on the costs of parasites and the thermal mismatch hypothesis with VA Viblanc

Media coverage

Visitors

  • We hosted for one day two students from Fabrice Helfenstein’s research group (University of Neuchâtel), Magali Meniri and Ségolène Humann-Guilleminot to discuss collaborations on ageing patterns in bats and house sparrow based on telomere measurements in sperm, and on sociality and ageing co-evolution in ground-squirrels (future postdoc co-application).
