Dr Belinda Wright’s research is broadly focussed on conservation of Australia’s threatened species. Belinda’s PhD involved using genomic techniques to investigate disease resistance in Tasmanian devils and also to inform population management of the species. Belinda has gone on to apply genomics to conservation questions in Koalas and Bilbies. With a strong interest in wildlife health and disease, Belinda seeks ways to best apply emerging genomic technologies to address the disease challenges facing Australia’s wildlife, with the aim of improving outcomes for threatened populations.
