Philipp Pröts BSc. MSc.

Current position

 

PhD Student in the ‘shallow water symbiosis’ group

 

Main fields of scientific research

 

During my master’s study I investigated the morphology of marine bryozoans but switched to nematode morphology for my PhD. My research now focuses on the nematode pharynx and the symbiosis between members of the marine Stilbonematinae and their bacterial ectosymbionts.
