Dr. rer. nat. habil. Boran Altincicek has been graduated from the University of Gießen in Germany. During preparing his Ph.D. thesis in Biology, he and his colleagues co-founded a biotech research spin-off company (Jomaa Pharmaka GmbH). Multidisciplinary research in host-pathogen-interactions and immunology, writing of patents and scientific publications were part of his work. After two years as Post-doc at the Institute of Biochemistry in Gießen, he took the opportunity to lead a research group and to investigate molecular adaptation of diverse insects to pathogens and the phenotypic plasticity and evolution of the insect immunity at the Institute of Phytopathology and Applied Zoology. Self-dependent teaching, own third-party funding, and numerous publications in international scientific journals resulted in his German “Habilitation” in the year 2009. Then, funded by the German Research Foundation-DFG with the Heisenberg fellowship in Zoology, he got the opportunity to work on insect ecology and evolution as a Visiting Scientist and Lecturer with Professor Nicole Gerardo at the Emory University in Atlanta, GA, USA. Prior to his current working as freelancer and consultant in Lilongwe Malawi (Africa) he was “Privatdozent” (equivalent to Assoc. Professor) in Zoology and Ecology at the Agricultural Faculty of the University of Bonn, Germany.
