Comparative Endocrinology Group Deputy Convenor

Armin Sturm is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Stirling, where he is based at the Institute of Aquaculture (School of Natural Sciences). He did his PhD at the UFZ Centre for Environmental Research Leipzig under the supervision of Helmut Segner, focusing on biochemical biomarkers (P-glycoprotein, cytochrome P450) in cultured trout hepatocytes. Subsequently, he conducted postdoctoral studies on teleost corticosteroid receptors at the INRA Rennes, France (Patrick Prunet) and King’s College London (Nic Bury). He arrived at the University of Stirling in 2006, where he teach ecotoxicology, aquaculture and aquatic ecology at undergraduate and MSc level.
Armin’s scientific interests include aquatic toxicology and fish endocrinology. Ongoing research activities include the search for molecular determinants of drug resistance in sea lice. He is further interested in corticosteroid signalling in teleosts.
