The Hoffmann lab focuses on three main areas of research:
In understanding the main issues and mechanisms involved with adaptation of organisms to stress, we are then able to make informed management decisions to industry and the community.
Techniques include: molecular population markers, ecological community assessments, pesticide assays, quantitative genetic analyses, molecular species markers and single gene assessments.
Professor Hoffmann received his PhD from La Trobe University in 1984 and held positions at La Trobe University before moving to the University of Melbourne in 2005. In 2000, he gained a grant from the ARC to establish a Special Research Centre, the Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research (CESAR) of which he was director. In 2004, he was elected to the Australian Academy of Science and has been awarded a Federation Fellowship. Ary is an ARC Laureate Fellow and Research Director for the Victorian Centre for Aquatic Pollution Identification and Management (CAPIM). His research addresses the way organisms (and in particular insects) evolve to deal with environmental stresses. His research is also directed at developing new methods of controlling insect pests and new ways of using genetic markers to monitor environmental changes.
