Biography

Anna is a first year PhD student with keen interest in both immunology and conservation. Currently she is undertaking a project on the immunogenomics of Atlantic salmon; looking at distribution of alleles of immune genes such as the MHC in Scotland.

Anna's supervisors are; Dr David Morris and Dr John Gilbey at Marine Scotland Science, and Professor Stuart Piertney and Dr Marius Wenzel at University of Aberdeen.

Previously, she investigated the genetic basis of the circadian clock in the helminth parasite, Schistosoma mansoni at Aberystwyth University.
