Dr Andre Vosloo
Dr Vosloo’s research focuses on integrated biological responses to environmental perturbation. This multi-hierarchical approach using organismal, cellular and molecular techniques has become the driving force in explaining the mechanisms underlying the effects of environmental change on individuals, and by extension on populations. He has an extensive collaboration with the mariculture industry, and research results contribute to the industry on several levels.

Andre is author on 20+ papers, co-inventor of two patents, editor of two books, guest editor of three journal volumes and organizer of several conferences and conference sessions. He has served as Deputy Head of School and Program Coordinator: Marine Sciences at UKZN.
