Ana Herrero, a PhD student at the Moredun Research Institute and the University of Stirling, was crowned the winning of the Young Scientist Award at the 10th Aquaculture UK Conference in Aviemore last week (25th May). The exhibition and conference is one of the major events in the aquaculture industry highlighting the latest advances in research and products.
The Young Scientist Award, sponsored by Elanco, saw the three finalists attend and present at the conference which culminated in Ana winning first prize with her presentation, “Comparing different histological methods to detect Desmozoon lepeophtherii (syn. Paranucleospora theridion) in Atlantic salmon proliferative gill disease”. We are delighted for Ana to receive recognition for her excellent studies and we wish her all the very best with her blossoming career.
