Wishing Martin Llewellyn all the best as he develops his research group at Glasgow University!
Following a productive research period investigating the dynamics of parasites and human epidemiology, Martin Llewellyn joined the group ca. 2012, to undertake a Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowship researching parasite host interactions in aquaculture species. Following a two-year secondment at the University of Laval, Martin returned to Bangor in 2014-2015 to wrap up his Fellowship and worked swiftly and efficiently to publish an ISME manuscript, outlining spatial and temporal perspectives into the development of microbiomes in wild salmon populations.
Towards the end of his Fellowship, we were also delighted that he acquired a Senior Lectureship position in the School of Life Sciences and Animal biology, Glasgow University, that now he has complemented with an academic appointment at the Institute of Biodiversity Animal Health and Comparative Medicine, also at Glasgow University. Since he has joined Glasgow University, he has continued with further successful grant acquisition spanning both the human and aquaculture aspects of disease and pathobiology, complemented by an extending portfolio in aquaculture energetics. Martin was very much a valued and dynamic member of the MEFGL and we continue to work with him on emerging projects and wish him and his research group the very best for the forthcoming years!
