Detecting fish pathogens using a digital device for point-of-care diagnostics

Our TheFishVet team member, Giana Bastos Gomes, was the overall winner of the 2016 Science and Innovation Award for Young People in Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry in Australia. Giana is creating a digital device to identify the type and quality of a pathogen on an aquaculture farm. This will avoid the long wait while samples are analysed off site, and allow farmers to treat fish before they show signs of infection. Originally from Brazil, Giana is completing a PhD at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia, with support of the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation. Mandy Gyles spoke with Giana after she received her prize.
