Listen to All Things De-Extinction and Cryopreservation51:109 October 2022

We’re wiping out species at a rate not seen in 66 million years, so the Museums Victoria Research Institute have decided to do something about it! Dr Kevin Rowe, Senior Curator of Mammals, joins Dr Jen and Dr Shane to talk genomes, innovation, and how institutions all play a role in managing our past and future ecology. At the other end of the spectrum, RMIT Research Fellow (and Renaissance woman) Dr Saffron Bryant shares the latest in her cryopreservation research. And then, while many of us re-evaluate our plans for the distant future, Dr Lauren Arundell, Research Fellow from the School of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences at Deakin University, brings some hard truths about screen time and behaviour in a post lock-down world.
