Klaus Hartfelder is a Full Professor of the Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto, Universidade de São Paulo (FMRP-USP). He studied Biology at the Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen, concluding with a Diploma (Master's) obtained in 1982, followed by a Doctoral degree in Zoology in 1986 from the same university, with a two-years stay (1983 and 1985) at the Departmento de Genética da Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto, Universidade de São Paulo (FMRP-USP). After a postdoctoral period in Tübingen (1986-1989), he spent a year as postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, specializing in insect endocrinology. After returning to Tübingen as Assistant Professor (1991 1998) he obtained the Habilitation in 1993.

Collaborative research projects are under way with colleagues abroad (The University of Sydney in Australia and two universities in Germany, Freiburg and Hohenheim). Interested in the genomics of social bees he participated in various large international consortia. He has experience in Developmental Biology and in Evolutionary Biology, with research projects focusing on the genomics and epigenetics of social bees, on regulatory pathways underlying caste development and the division of labor in social insects, and on insect endocrinology.
