I am currently working on the FHF-funded projects ModuLus and Salivax, in which we characterise the proteins of the salivatory glands of salmon lice and use them for the development of a DNA vaccine.

Previously I have worked on the projects Freshnet adn Freshnet 2 where we looked at the osmoregulation of salmon lice.
