This project involved the development of a reliable, large-scale ability to effectively expand studies into koala immunogenetics. This will assist future studies into the link between koalas and cancer development.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary assisted in funding the research and provided samples from our entire adult colony of koalas.
