Research Profile

Sharon Lynch

Biography

Assistant lecturer and research fellow in the shellfish health unit and histology laboratory manager at School of BEES and AFDC.  Research interests include shellfish health (oysters, scallops, abalone, mussels), immunology and life cycle studies of shellfish parasites and disease-causing pathogens, in particular the protistan, Bonamia ostreae and ostreid herpesvirus 1.  Diagnostic techniques, cytology, histology, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), quantitative PCR and in situ hybridisation (ISH), are routinely used to screen for pathogens.

Research Interests

  • Shellfish health and disease
  • Pathogen life cycle
  • Reservoirs of infection
  • Host and pathogen population genetics
  • Shellfish restoration
