Dr. Andreas Heyland is an Associate Professor at the University of Guelph in the Department of Integrative Biology. Dr. Heyland's laboratory uses novel functional genomics approaches to study the endocrine and neuroendocrine systems of aquatic invertebrates, primarily sea urchin and crustacean species. Specifically, he investigates the function and evolution of hormonal and neurotransmitter signaling systems in the regulation of development and metamorphosis. He has presented his work at numerous invited national and international conferences, seminars and public lectures. Dr Heyland has over 60 citations including articles in peer-reviewed journals, book chapters and published abstracts. He also provides reviews for peer reviewed journals in the fields of developmental biology, evolution, cell biology, aquaculture, oceanography, limnology and experimental biology. Furthermore he serves as a reviewer for NSF, NIH and NSERC and several other international funding agencies.
