Love DalénSweden

    Love Dalén is a Professor of evolutionary genomics at Stockholm University, and one of the founding members of the Swedish Centre for Palaeogenetics. His research is focused on using ancient DNA to investigate the evolutionary history of both extinct and extant wild animals, including mammoths, lemmings, bears and cave lions. His research group is renowned for being the first to sequence the complete woolly mammoth and rhinoceros genomes. In 2021, he led an international consortium that sequenced the oldest genomes ever recovered, from mammoth remains that were more than one million years old. His current research is funded by the Swedish Research Council, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and an ERC Advanced Grant.
