Genomics and AI in the context of

Planetary Health 

Lara Urban

I study 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.

I will soon start my own research group at Helmholtz Munich and at the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus, so please be in touch if you are interested in collaborating. My latest work as an Independent Humboldt Research Fellow has focused on how various conservation genomics applications can support some of New Zealand's critically endangered wildlife.
