Ida Beitnes Johansen


Ida is a postdoctoral fellow at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) in Oslo. She did her PhD at the same University studying individual variation in stress responsiveness and how that affects neuronal and cardiac plasticity in different species of salmonid fish. During a post-doc at the University of Oslo, she continued studying cardiac remodeling in salmonids and identified stress and stress hormones as contributors to the development of cardiac disease. After two years, working as an Associate Professor at Bjørknes College and the Institute for Experimental Medical Research (IEMR), Oslo University Hospital, she returned to the field of comparative physiology through her current post-doc at NMBU. In her current research, she studies interactions between parasites and hosts and explore mechanisms behind host manipulation in zebrafish, Arctic char and California killifish. She is co-PI in the Øyvind Øverli group.
