I am studying the immunological response of Atlantic salmon towards salmon louse. I am characterising salivary gland proteins of salmon louse, and study how they affect immune cells of salmon. I use methods such as in situ hybdridisation, RNAi, recombinant proteins, leucocyte isolation and sorting of leucocytes with mangetic beads and flow cytometry.
