Koala health and disease in South Australia
Join the Koala Health Research Group and contribute to key research to improve the health of current and future animal populations.
Researchers in the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences investigate various aspects of koala health and disease in South Australia, such as kidney disease, Chlamydia and koala retrovirus.
We have honours research opportunities for students interested in koala health and disease. These projects will involve using tissue samples collected from affected koalas to analyse health status with various techniques such as histology, biochemistry and molecular analyses.
We invite you to contact us to discuss opportunities for honours research in this field.
How do we feed the world’s growing population? How do we save our wildlife from extinction? Got an idea that will build a brighter, greener world?
Australian high school students are invited to submit a short video about one of Australia’s big science challenges.
