Current research and/or projects

Part of my lab work for the completion of my Master’s degree focused on the interactions between bacteria and toxic algae, as it related to toxin production. I’ve been interested multi-organism relationships ever since. Currently my research focuses on the interaction between marine pathogens and their hosts. I have four main research interests at this time.

  1. The study of global gene expression patterns in Atlantic salmon following infections with the Infectious Salmon Anaemia Virus.
  2. The development of novel molecular vaccines and treatments against the Infectious Salmon Anaemia Virus.
  3. Global gene expression patterns in mollusks following infections with various protistan pathogens.
  4. The development of molecular assays for the detection of marine pathogens.
