Dr Sara Peres is a Postdoctoral researcher in Animal Research Nexus within Geography at the University of Southampton.

Applying STS and Human Geography to exploring the social relations underpinning animal research in the UK. Working with Dr Emma Roe, we examine the breeding, supply and archiving of laboratory animals as part of the Animal Research Nexus Collaborative Award, 2017-2022.

Sara works in Geography and Environment at the University of Southampton, where she is exploring what the breeding, supply, and archiving of laboratory animals can tell us about the economies of animal research. Her broader research interests lie in applying STS and Human Geography perspectives to the study of biobanks in order to understand the relationship between the circulation of biological materials and the political economies of science.

She has previously focused on how agricultural seeds are banked and circulated for conservation purposes for her PhD (UCL, 2017), the history of seed banks, and uncertainty in public health emergencies. Educated to postgraduate level in genetics, Sara has experience of basic and clinical research environments, has worked at a science museum, and remains keen on public engagement activities. She holds honorary research posts at the University of Exeter and UCL.
