Madeleine van Oppen's Profile Picture
Prof

Madeleine van Oppen

 

Madeleine holds a halftime position as a Chair in Marine Biology at the University of Melbourne (School of BioSciences) and a halftime position as a Senior Principal Research Scientist at the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS). Her research focuses on microbial symbiosis in corals, adaptation/acclimatisation to climate change, and connectivity of coral reefs.

Her work is increasingly focusing on ‘assisted evolution’, where mechanisms of adaptation and acclimatisation in corals and genetic manipulations to enhance stress tolerance and fitness of corals in a changing environment are explored.
