Prof. Dr. Barbara Helm
Prof. Dr. Barbara Helm is Professor Biological Rhythms at the Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences (GELIFES), and Visiting Professor at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. She is keenly interested in clocks and calendars of wild things, in particular birds, and fascinated by avian migration. It worries her that human modification of the environment also affects the rhythms of life, and she has joined the consortium to better understand the consequences and possible mitigation.
The BioClock Consortium is funded by the NWA-ORC programme of the Dutch Research Council (NWO; project number 1292.19.077).
