 Summary of the Molecular Diagnostics Research Group and the Vivaldi project

The Molecular Diagnostics Research Group (MDRG) at NUI Galway, led by Professor Terry Smith, has 30 years’ experience and an international track record of achievement in the development and application of molecular diagnostics tests for infectious disease.  The MDRG (http://ncbes.nuigalway.ie/research/molecular-diagnostics-research-group/) has developed a suite of platform technologies, based on proprietary nucleic acid sequence targets, for the detection and identification of bacteria and fungi. The MDRG has worked successfully with a number of commercial partners to develop molecular diagnostic products for infectious diseases based on these platform technologies. 

VIVALDI (Preventing and Mitigating Farmed Bivalve Diseases) is a European scientific project, financed in the framework of the EU Research and Development programme called Horizon 2020. It is carried out by a consortium of 21 partners, from 10 countries.  VIVALDI’s overarching purpose is to increase the sustainability and competitiveness of the European shellfish industry. For this, it will aim at improving the understanding of the diseases and developing practical solutions to prevent, control and manage them. The main species to be studied will be: oysters, mussels, clams and scallops.  For more information see http://www.vivaldi-project.eu/

The Molecular Diagnostics Research Group’s contribution to the Vivaldi project involves a close collaboration between the Molecular Diagnostics Research Group, NUI Galway and the Shellfish Health Group at the Marine Institute, led by Deborah Cheslett, and the focus of the work to be carried out by the MDRG relates to infectious diseases of most significance to the Irish shellfish aquaculture industry, namely OsHV-1µVar and Vibrio aestuarianus impacting Pacific oysters (C. gigas).

This position isjointly funded by the H2020 ATLAS project and SFI MaREI-Obs and is available from February 2018 for a period of 30 months.

 

Marine spatial planning (MSP) requires spatially explicit environmental risk assessment with quantitative or probabilistic measures of risk to enable evaluation of spatial management scenarios.  This position offers an exciting opportunity to get involved in cutting edge national and international research focused on developing the knowledge base and support tools needed to support Marine Spatial Planning in Ireland and across the North Atlantic.

 

ATLAS (www.eu-atlas.org) is a 4-year €9.2M project funded through the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 scheme. The project began in May 2016 and has 24 core partners, a wider network of associate partners and an international Advisory Board. Its goals are to create a trans-Atlantic assessment and deep-water ecosystem-based spatial management plan for Europe.

MaREI (http://www.marei.ie) is the marine and renewable energy research, development and innovation Centre supported by Science Foundation Ireland. It combines the expertise of a wide range of research groups and industry partners, with the shared mission of solving the main scientific, technical and socio-economic challenges across the marine and renewable energy sectors.  The MaREI-Obs spoke academic/industry project (S 6.1.4) will address the need for integrated Decision Support Tools to support implementation of Marine Spatial Planning in Ireland.

 

National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) (http://www.nuigalway.ie) is the largest and oldest university based in the west of Ireland, employing in excess of 2,000 staff with a 18, 000 strong student population.
