PhD, Animal Biology, UC Davis
Tawny Scanlan is concerned for the nutrition and food security challenges facing the international community. The global human population is projected to reach approximately 9.7B by 2050, and she proposes that aquaculture – the production and harvesting of plants and animals in water environments for food – could present an efficient solution for protein production and relieve wild harvesting pressures.
Through her work at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine: Department of Anatomy, Physiology, and Cell Biology as a Graduate Student Researcher for Meyer’s Lab, Scanlan studies the impacts of global climate change on larval and juvenile rainbow trout gonadal development as a model for at-risk salmonids for developing reproductive biotechnologies to maximize genetic diversity in salmonid and sturgeon species for conservation biology and aquaculture production.
