Research Tuesdays

Our doors open every month

Our researchers are driven by the desire to understand. They work to uncover new knowledge and shed light on the world's biggest challenges. From tackling Meningococcal B to finding energy solutions for the future, our discoveries make a difference to people's lives across the world.

At Research Tuesdays we share this knowledge, every month. If you're curious about the changing world, we invite you to join us. Our doors open every month.

Mission mammal

From the lions of the Serengeti to the blue whales of the Southern Ocean, mammals dominate our planet. But their future’s far from assured. Many species now require urgent conservation—and here in Australia we have a critical role to play.

One of only 17 ‘megadiverse’ nations, we’re home to a huge variety of mammals, with a remarkable 87 per cent found nowhere else on Earth. Highly aware of this, University of Adelaide researchers are applying advanced techniques to:

• track species’ distribution through ancient fossil and DNA records
• fight diseases, such as koala retrovirus and devil facial tumour disease
• understand urban adaptations, such as in Adelaide’s grey-headed flying foxes.

It’s vital work—not only to maintain biodiversity, but to preserve key aspects of our national identity and Indigenous culture. In this special Research Tuesdays forum, we’ll share our progress.

A panel of Adelaide researchers who are working to conserve our native mammals.

We hope you’ll join the conversation.

Date: Tuesday, 13 August
Time: 5.30pm
