About me

About me

Rowena has worked in Fish Immunology since 1996. Upon finishing her PhD in early 2001 she moved to Scotland and worked as a technician in the Aquatic Vaccine Unit, Institute of Aquaculture until leaving to have a family in 2003. In 2008 she returned to work as a technician at Landcatch Natural Selection, a company which provides selective breeding programs for aquaculture. In 2010 she was awarded a Daphne Jackson Fellowship which enabled her to return to the Vaccine Unit at the Institute of Aquaculture as a Research Fellow. She has since been employed on a Medical Research Council grant developing methodologies to enable the 3 R’s and on an EU project (TargetFish) which aimed to develop new vaccines for European aquaculture species. As part of this project she developed a vaccine for Rainbow Trout Fry Syndrome caused by Flavobacterium psychrophilum. She is also involved in developing a vaccine for Francisellosis in Tilapia using proteomic methods and recently received a SAIC grant, in conjunction with AquaGen, to work on resistance to F. psychrophilum in Atlantic salmon.
