Research questions

Marian Hu has a strong research interest in the physiological processes of homeostasis regulation in marine animals. In particular, he is interested in the pH-regulatory mechanisms in calcifying cell systems and the gastrointestinal tract of marine invertebrates and their interactions with changing environmental conditions.
His current research questions are:

  • Which trans-membrane transport processes enable biomineralisation?
  • What are the transport mechanisms in epithelia that lead to the maintenance of extracellular homeostasis in marine organisms?
  • Are there interactions between gastrointestinal pH homeostasis and gut microbiota in marine invertebrates?
  • To what extent can these regulatory mechanisms adapt to global environmental changes in marine systems?
