Virus research par excellence

Dr. Sonal Patel has been awarded an “excellent young researcher” (YFF) grant by the Aquaculture program of the Norwegian Research Council for the project entitled "Mitigating the challenges in the Atlantic salmon aquaculture caused by salmonid alphavirus by unveiling the underlying immune mechanisms". The project, to be led by Dr. Patel, will study why farmed salmon get pancreatic disease (PD) and how the virus that causes the disease works. This is the first YFF grant to be awarded to a scientist from IMR, and is only the sixth awarded by the Aquaculture program.
