Associate Professor Kristin Warren
BSc, BVMS (Hons), PhD, Dip ECZM (Wildlife Population Health)

Associate Professor in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine, Academic Chair - Postgraduate Studies in Conservation Medicine

About me

I have worked in the field of conservation medicine for 25 years, and am currently Associate Professor in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine and Academic Chair of Postgraduate Studies in Conservation Medicine in the College of Veterinary Medicine, School of Veterinary and Life Sciences, Murdoch University.

After graduating as a veterinarian I completed a Zoo and Wildlife Medicine Internship, followed by veterinary research at Wanariset Orang-utan Reintroduction Centre in Kalimantan. I was awarded a Nuffic scholarship by the Dutch government to undertake molecular work in the Netherlands for my PhD (awarded in 2001), which focused on infectious diseases and population genetics of wild orang-utans. This research has led to many publications, including two landmark papers on orang-utan genetic diversity and evolutionary history in Proc. Nat Academy Sci USA and Mol. Biol. Evol. I was appointed as a member of the IUCN/SSC Re-introduction Specialist Group in 2001 and the IUCN/SSC Veterinary Specialist Group in 2002.

Since my appointment at Murdoch University, I have continued to maintain research as a high priority, and have obtained research funding of more than $3,635,214. I have been Chief Investigator on two successful ARC Linkage grants, most recently as Principal Chief Investigator. These ARC projects have investigated infectious disease in bandicoots, and translocation as a conservation strategy for ringtail possums. I have also been involved in leading a disease investigation research project focussed on the Top End Mammal Decline, which was undertaken in collaboration with the Department of Land and Resource Management in the Northern Territory and was funded by a National Environmental Research Program. I have numerous collaborations in the field of wildlife disease surveillance, with a strong focus on research in regional-rural areas. This includes research into the ecology and health of threatened wildlife in Australian and around the world. Over the last ten years I have led major research projects on black cockatoo health, demographics and ecology, and findings from this research has informed government policy and practice at State and Federal Government level.

I have supervised the successful completion of 18 postgraduate research students (16 PhD, 1 DVetMedSci, 1 RMT). I was Principal Supervisor for 10 of these students, including one student from Thailand who was the recipient of the Prime Minister’s Australia-Asia Award. I’m currently supervising 13 postgraduate research students (7 PhD, 6 DVetMedSci), for nine of whom I am the Principal Supervisor.

Teaching area

I am responsible for teaching and teaching development in the fields of wildlife, zoological and conservation medicine to veterinary science and postgraduate coursework students. Veterinary science students require training in wildlife medicine to enable them to effectively deal with sick and injured wildlife and exotic companion animals that they will encounter working in private practice. Training in wildlife and conservation medicine also provides our veterinary science students with a strong foundation for further postgraduate studies, which can be undertaken by students wishing to pursue a career as a veterinarian working in a zoo or wildlife conservation project. Conservation Medicine is an emerging discipline that involves the integration of veterinary science, conservation biology and public health in order to: advance biodiversity conservation; address issues associated with the inter-relationships between human, animal and ecosystem health; and study the effects of global environmental change on these health inter-relationships.

I am responsible for coordinating and/or teaching in Avian, Exotic Pet and Wildlife Medicine (VET636), Wildlife and Exotic Pet Medicine Core Clinical Rotation (VET619) and Advanced Topics in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine (VET645). The Core Clinical Rotation (VET619) and  Advanced Topics in Wildlife, Zoological and Conservation Medicine (VET645) were established in collaboration with Perth Zoo, and provide a unique learning experience in wildlife and conservation medicine.

In 2004, I established the Conservation Medicine Postgraduate Coursework Program in order to provide veterinarians with expertise and practical training to enable them to effectively participate in biodiversity conservation projects around the world. The program has been extremely successful and the coursework degrees have become internationally recognised.

There are two postgraduate coursework degrees offered in the Conservation Medicine Program – the Master of Veterinary Studies (MVS) in Conservation Medicine, for which I am the Academic Chair, and the Master of Wildlife Health and Conservation, for which my colleague, Dr Bethany Jackson, is the Academic Chair. One of the major strengths of these postgraduate coursework degrees is their interdisciplinary nature, with students able to select electives from a wide range of disciplines. This training provides expertise to enable veterinarians and graduates from the environmental sciences, to participate in multidisciplinary teams working on wildlife conservation problems which can often only be effectively addressed with such a transdisciplinary approach.

Graduates from our Conservation Medicine Postgraduate Coursework Program have gained employment with a diverse range of non-governmental and governmental organisations including the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in New Zealand; the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia; Perth Zoo; Werribee Zoo, New Zealand Centre for Conservation Medicine, the Cheetah Conservation Fund, Namibia and the World Society for the Protection of Animals, London.

Research areas

As a staff member in the School of Veterinary Medicine in the College of Science, Health, Engineering and Education, I recognise the importance of maintaining a strong research track record. I am involved in numerous collaborative research projects in the fields of health and ecology of wildlife species in relation to conservation management. Since my appointment at Murdoch University I have obtained research funding of more than $3,635,214.

The focus of my research in the field of conservation medicine involves studying the health of endangered wildlife species within ecological contexts in order to assist recovery efforts to conserve these species. Disease is increasingly recognised as a major threatening factor for wildlife conservation, and emergence of new diseases is often associated with inter-relationships between human, animal and ecosystem health; decreased genetic variation; anthropogenic environmental impacts; and changes in host-parasite relationships associated with ecological change. My research focuses on determining the ecological drivers of disease and the role that disease plays in population declines and extinctions of endangered species.

I have been Chief Investigator on two successful ARC Linkage grants, most recently as Principal Chief Investigator, and a National Environmental Research Program (NERP) grant. The ARC projects have investigated infectious disease in bandicoots, and translocation as a conservation strategy for ringtail possums. I have numerous collaborations in the field of wildlife disease surveillance, with a strong focus on research in regional-rural areas. This includes research into the ecology and health of threatened Australian wildlife in regional-rural areas in four states (WA, SA, Qld, Tas, NT) with all postgraduate students operating in remote areas. I have supervised the successful completion of 18, and I’m currently supervising 13, postgraduate research students.

I am also responsible for the supervision of the three postgraduate Residency Programs (the John Howell Zoo and Wildlife Medicine Residency Program – Perth Zoo, the Wildlife and Conservation Medicine Residency Program – Auckland Zoo and Wildlife Population Health Residency Program – Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions) offered by the Conservation Medicine Program which aim to provide veterinarians with advanced postgraduate level clinical training in wildlife, zoological and conservation medicine. An additional two new Residency Programs will be established with Taronga Zoo and Western Plains Zoo, and these programs will commence in July 2020.
