More information on our presenter: After receiving his PhD in Biology in 2004, and a one year postdoctoral appointment at the German Primate Centre, Prof Ganswindt joined the University of Pretoria  as a postdoctoral fellow in 2006 and became a Research fellow in 2009. The same year, he founded the Endocrine Research Laboratory to formally establish behavioural/wildlife endocrinology as a prospective research area at the university, which quickly developed into a solid platform for conducting basic and applied scientific research in the broad field of behavioural endocrinology, thereby establishing non-invasive tools for monitoring reproductive function and responses to stressors in captive and free-ranging animals. The lab is currently involved in over 20 research projects and collaborates with over 25 national and international scientific/conservation institutions. He became an Associated Professor in 2013 at the Department of Anatomy and Physiology, continuing his research in the field of behavioural/wildlife endocrinology. In 2014, he became Section head of Physiology and was appointed acting Head of the Department of Anatomy and Physiology in January 2016. He holds a C1-rating from the National Research Foundation and was vice chair of the International Society for Wildlife Endocrinology between 2012 and 2015. So far, he has published 50 peer-reviewed articles (h-index: 11) and 3 chapters in books. He acted as a reviewer for various national and international funding institutions as well as 35 different scientific journals.

Target audience: Researchers and postgraduate students – especially Masters' students in the process of writing a proposal.
