Tudor Baetu
KLI for Evolution and Cognition Research, Altenberg

Tudor Baetu holds degrees in Biology and Philosophy of Biology. He obtained a M.Sc. degree in Molecular Biology from McGill University (2001, Expression of Cytokine and Apoptotic Genes: a role for NF-κB in the regulation of TNF-α Related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand (TRAIL) expression), where he worked on a project concerning the regulation of immune responses in cancer and HIV infection. He finished his Ph.D. in Philosophy at the Université de Montréal (2009), under the supervision of Prof. Yvon Gauthier. In his dissertation (Strategies of Empirical Justification in Experimental Science), he investigated the experimental constraints on the formulation and confirmation of hypotheses using genetics as a study case. From 2008 to 2011 he worked at the University of Maryland on a project concerning the evolution of the concept of the gene from classical genetics, to molecular biology, to present-day genomics. Currently, he works as a postdoctoral fellow at the KLI.
