The annual global economic losses incurred as a result of disease outbreaks in marine fisheries and farming are estimated to reach US$6 billion. Decades of research on human and plant infections have revealed that the behavior of pathogens is what ultimately determines whether or not they are able to infect their host. In spite of this, our knowledge of the chemical signals that influence the behavior of marine pathogens is still in its infancy stage. This study will integrate cutting-edge methods in microbial ecology, chemical imaging, and microfluidics in order to determine the cues that govern the behavior of marine diseases. The anticipated results include an increased capacity to predict, monitor, and manage marine diseases, as well as the development of novel techniques to prevent disease outbreaks, which will assist in protecting Australia’s marine estate.


About the Scholarship Sponsor:

The New South Wales Institute of Technology was the precursor of what is now known as the University of Technology in Sydney. It was established in 1964 and served as a precursor to the university (UTS). On January 25, 1988, the transaction to purchase the School of Design at Sydney College of the Arts was successfully completed by the organization. Before the University of Technology, Sydney Act was passed on January 26, 1988, the institution that is currently known as UTS was once known as the University of Technology, Sydney. On January 1, 1990, the Kuring-Gai College of Advanced Education and the Institute of Technical and Adult Teacher Education merged with UTS to form what is now known as the University of Technology and Sydney. UTS is responsible for creating what is now known as the University of Technology and Sydney. The publicly supported research institution is now connected with three international organizations: the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIHL), and the Australian Technology Network (ATN) (ATN).

There is a campus of the University of Technology Sydney located just to the south of the Central Business District in Sydney. On campus, the central administrative and academic buildings can be found in one of three places.
