AFBI provides training for Chilean scientist

Dr. Maria Eugenia Cabrejos, laboratory manager of AquaInnova, a Chilean company based in Puerto Montt, recently spent three days in the Veterinary Sciences Division of the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) training in a range of diagnostic techniques for fish diseases.

The visit arose from an invited presentation by AFBI’s Dr. David Graham at a fish health conference in 2008 held in Puerto Montt, which is home to a large aquaculture industry. Since then, AFBI has been involved with a number of laboratories in Chile and with Sernepesca, the Chilean Fish Health Authority, in monitoring and improving the quality of aspects of their laboratory testing.

Dr Cabrejos’s visit also provided an opportunity to discuss areas of mutual scientific interest which, it is hoped will lead to further collaborative work between AFBI and Aqualnnova.
