The Lind Lab is located both at Halmstad University and Uppsala University (where we run our ongoing nematode research), with its core funding from the Swedish Research Council VR.
We are interested in life history evolution in general, and our current research is focused around two connected themes:
(1) Evolution of inheritance systems (phenotypic plasticity, parental and epigenetic inheritance) during adaptation to heterogeneous environments, with a recent focus on the interplay between plasticity and adaptation.
(2) The role of life-history trade-offs during the evolution of long lifespan, including lifespan extension.
We investigate these questions using experimental evolution, artificial selection, pharmaceutical and genetic manipulations in the powerful Caenorhabditis remanei and C. elegans nematode model systems.
