Conservation Genomics

Lara Urban

I am an Independent Humboldt Research Fellow who studies how genomic research can benefit nature conservation in the context of planetary health, which affirms that human health and the health of our planet are inextricably linked. My current work focuses on conservation genomics of some of New Zealand's critically endangered wildlife, and on the application of portable genomic sequencing and environmental DNA research.
