Julia Marie Glebe, B.Sc. Biology
Julia was born on 24th September, 1991 and raised in Hannover. After receiving her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology in 2014 from the Leibniz University Hannover, she enrolled in the program ‘Animal Biology and Biomedical Sciences’ at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover. During severaI study courses at the ITZ in the Schierwater lab, Julia became particularly interested in developmental genetics and phylogenomics in early metazoans. Her first project is about the functional role and phylogenomic implications of Pax genes in Placozoa. Enjoying travelling and being interested in invertebrate research, she took the chance to participate in international study courses at the ‘Station biologique de Roscoff’ in France and at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Other than that, she enjoys the outdoors - particularly diving and sailing.
