Dr Dalene Vosloo
Dr Vosloo is researcher and lecturer at the School of Life Science, interested in studying environment induced stress responses in animals.

She is particularly interested in studying the expression of stress proteins, as well as assessing damage when the capacity of protective responses has been exceeded.

Dr Vosloo holds a MSc and PhD in Zoology.
