Vaccines for the Aquaculture Industry
School of Chemical & Life Sciences

Staff scientists at SCL have expertise and capabilities to provide ad-hoc autogenous vaccine development and epitope identification services to aqua culturists. This is a customised disease protection strategy against less well studied locally isolated pathogens from fish stocks.
