Klaus Reinhardt

On 1 Nov 2014 I started the Applied Zoology/ Angewandte Zoologie lab at Technische Universität Dresden. This was one of ten Open Topics Tenure Track Positions supported by the German Excellence Initiative. I mainly use insects for my research, such as the lovely bedbugs (see here for a youtube video that brings them closer to you than you may everwish to be). Publications and citations are here. And here, too. Research Interests are here. Within our lab, three subgroups follow somewhat separate strings of research with hopefully and ever increasing tendency to connect them – Sperm Biology and Mito-Nuclear Interactions, and Spermatognesis. Also, I have a faible for Cultural Entomology.
