About APECS

IPY-OSC Francisco Fernandoy-46
APECS is an international and interdisciplinary organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early faculty members, educators and others with interests in Polar Regions and the wider cryosphere. Our aims are to stimulate interdisciplinary and international research collaborations, and develop effective future leaders in polar research, education and outreach. We seek to achieve these aims by:
  • Facilitating international and interdisciplinary networking to share ideas and experiences and to develop new research directions and collaborations;
  • Providing opportunities for professional career development; and
  • Promoting education and outreach as an integral component of polar research and to stimulate future generations of polar researchers.

National Science Foundation Director Subra Suresh presented President Barack Obama's 2013 budget request for the agency in February, seeking about a 5 percent bump over last year's enacted budget, to $7.3 billion. Antarctic research looks to receive a proposed 9 percent increase over last year.

After completing my master degree in Biology at the C atholic University of Leuven (Belgium), I started my PhD in 2009 on the AMBIO (Antarctic microbial biodiversity) project at Ghent University. In 2010 I obtained an IWT scholarship which focuses on the adaptation of drought and salinity stress in Antarctic filamentous cyanobacteria. To gain a better understanding of the genetic adaptation we want to perform a genome analysis. In addition we want to identify stress regulated genes through a transcriptome analysis under experimental induced salinity and drought stress and perform ecofysiological experiments to investigate local adaptation of salinity and droughtstress in filamentous cyanobacteria.
