Dr. Christian Tudorache is assistant professor in Comparative Physiology and Behaviour at the Institute of Biology Leiden. He is interested in how individual vertebrates cope with stress, and the link to personality and the biological clock. His approach is multi-disciplinary and integrative, including molecular biology, morphology, biomechanics and toxicology. He joined the consortium to better understand how natural timing is influenced by human activity in the Anthropocene and how to mitigate for possible disruptions of the rhythms of life.
The BioClock Consortium is funded by the NWA-ORC programme of the Dutch Research Council (NWO; project number 1292.19.077).
