Professor Glencross has a broad research background that spans the use of bioactives in feeds (e.g. he led the development and commercialisation of the Novacq™ microbial bioactive technology), the development of functional feeds for animal health (e.g. managing SGS in salmon farming), refining the knowledge on essential amino acid and fatty acid requirements in fish and shrimp, the use of nutritional modelling strategies (e.g. the SimFISH™ performance models of which are now used across the Australian barramundi industry) and refining raw material evaluation (e.g. led the work leading to the broad adoption of lupin, canola and soybean meals and canola oils by the Australian aquaculture feed sector in the early 2000’s). As the scientist that led the development and commercialisation of Novacq™ at CSIRO he and his team were recently awarded that organisations’ prestigious Impact from Science Medal. In recognition of his contributions to the Australian prawn and barramundi farming sectors Professor Glencross was also awarded the Industry Research and Innovation Award in 2012.
