Bio/Research

Since joining the University of Guelph in 2005, Dr. Hanner has developed a broad-ranging research program in molecular biodiversity. Focusing on food security issues in collaboration with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, his research involves DNA-based bio-surveillance of agricultural pests, plant viruses and vectors of disease. Notably, it has also engaged citizen scientists, journalists, and NGOs in revealing market substitution and food fraud, both in Canada and internationally.

The environmental or “eDNA" research he currently spearheads aims to support the conservation of aquatic species-at-risk and is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada and the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE), together with support from varied governmental and industry partners.
