New molecular genetics lab at BCC

This year, our partner National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC) has invested in developing a molecular genetics lab at the Biodiversity and Conservation Center in Sauraha, Chitwan on the edge of Chitwan National Park. This facility will allow Dr. Amir Sadaula to develop and run important molecular diagnostic tests designed specifically for diseases that threaten endangered species in Nepal. This is an exciting development and will greatly boost the ability to investigate disease very close to where it’s happening. For two years, Dr. Sadaula was our VIEW Veterinary Fellow on the project in Nepal. Also during that time, he completed his Masters degree in Biotechnology at the nearby Agriculture and Forestry University, with his final thesis study on Elephant Herpes virus in the local elephants. We congratulate him on finishing his degree and taking over the responsibility of the new lab and are really excited about the work ahead.


VIEW’s mission is to protect endangered wildlife by tackling the health threats they face in their native habitats.


VIEW envisions a world where all countries have the commitment and local capacity to support wildlife health as a cornerstone of conservation.
