Purpose: Capacity building in molecular genetics and immunology for biodiversity conservation in Chile. The DI-funded project Conserving the critically endangered Darwin’s fox on Chiloe Island, Chile has successfully conducted active research and conservation of Darwin’s fox on Chioe Island in 2002 — 2005. Local NGOs will continue to actively pursue applied conservation. The scholarship aims to provide training and capacity building in areas here Chile requires further assistance. Capacity will be built in molecular screening and immunology and the scholar will actively disseminate knowledge in Chile. Training will develop and apply molecular screening of loci involved in immunocompetence. The model species will use Darwin’s fox and the methodology will assist further conservation planning (translocations and captive breeding).
