Cecilia is in her final year of her PhD at RMIT University, and has an interest in industry-focused research, particularly relating to fish health in aquaculture. She will discuss the findings from her PhD work which includes a long-term study of blood fluke infections from cultured Southern bluefin tuna in Australia, as well as the development of a novel on-site diagnostic test to be used by the industry for rapid detection of blood flukes. Emily is a final year PhD student in A/Prof Stuart Ralph’s lab at The University of Melbourne. She graduated with a Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) from The University of Sydney in 2016. Her current research focuses on the pharmacology of front-line antimalarial drugs.
