Recent funding in Norway

Members of the SALTT lab and our colleagues have had resounding success in the recent Aquaculture funding round in Norway. Samantha Bui has her own project with a 2 year post-doc salary on ‘Parasite- and host-driven characteristics of infestation success in salmon lice (Lice-IS)’, Nick Robinson will lead a project called ‘Gene editing for elucidating gene function and refining genomic selection for CMS resistance in Atlantic salmon’ which will use the hot new CRISPR technology, and Lars Helge Stien was also successful for a project on ‘Optimising feed withdrawal for safeguarding fish welfare’ to investigate a very routine practice that we know very little about.
