Prof. Elena Buzan – Project Visitor from Europe

Our new INAU project collaborator, Prof. Elena Buzan, a leading European scientist in Molecular Ecology from the University of Primorska, Koper, Slovenia, visited our UFMT project facilities and the Institute of Bioscience to discuss details of our future research cooperations with the CO.BRA team and the colleagues from the Dept. of Zoology. Her visit was granted by an International Visiting Professor Scholarship of the Universidade Federal de Mato Grosso, Pro-Rectorate of Research, Cuiaba. During her one week stay, Prof. Elena Buzan visited the  Molecular Laboratory and the field study sites of CO.BRA. She gave a well-attended talk on “New Approaches of Molecular Ecology“. She plans to return next year for a longer stay to work within our INAU project on topics related to molecular genetics of migratory birds in the Pantanal.
