Rolff Lab – Evolutionary Biology
at Freie Universität Berlin

Welcome

We are interested in the evolution and ecology of insects. This encompasses the evolution of (insect) immunity, bacterial resistance evolution, insect-microbe interactions and adaptation to predators

We are also members of the ZIBI Interdisciplinary Center for Infection Biology and Immunity. And the Berlin Brandenburg Institute of Advanced Biodiversity Research.
