Biography

Dr Andrew Bridle completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Hons) at the University of Tasmania during which he spent his honours year investigating the use of a recombinant interleukin as an immunoadjuvant in the vaccination of barramundi. In 2005, Andrew completed his PhD at the University of Tasmania having investigated immune-regulatory genes and the potential for immunomodulation in Atlantic salmon. He has since worked as a postdoctoral research fellow on a Nutritional Biotechnology project, and undertaken an ARC Linkage project aimed at improving the efficacy of vaccination against yersiniosis in Atlantic salmon. Dr Bridle is a senior member of the aquatic animal health research group within IMAS and specialises in molecular biology research and its application to aquatic animal health.

Research Themes

Dr Bridle's research addresses the University's Marine, Antarctic and Maritime and Environment, Resources and Sustainability research themes. His interests include understanding the host, pathogen environment interactions affecting aquaculture. His expertise in molecular biology in particular gene expression and its application to investigations of both the host and aquatic pathogens is an underlying research theme. Research highlights include the identification of an mRNA biosignature that can be used to predict vaccine success eliminating disease challenges and research demonstrating that antimicrobial peptides can influence the immune response of fish suggesting an indirect mode of microbicidal activity. He has an extensive history of research into amoebic gill disease (AGD) and its causative agent the amoeba Neoparamoeba perurans as well as yersiniosis in Atlantic salmon caused by the bacterium Yersinia ruckeri. His AGD research includes the establishment of an in vitro culture technique for N. perurans and the fulfilment of Koch's postulates. Dr Bridle is an expert in molecular detection of aquatic pathogens and has developed several assays employed worldwide. Currently Dr Bridle's research includes research into the immunology of important aquaculture species including lobsters, tuna, barramundi, Atlantic salmon and includes research on oral vaccination, disease processes, the immune response and detection of pathogens.

Blood flukes in Southern Bluefin Tuna (2015 - 2017)$21,000
Description
Based on its value Southern Bluefin Tuna (SBT) industry is one of the most important fish producedin Australia. It is based on ranching 2-3year old wild SBT. Blood flukes Cardicola forsteri and Cardicola orientalis are the most significant health issues for ranched SBT (Hardy-Smith et al 2012, Polinski et al 2013). This project will focus on those blood flukes. Currently, the infection can be assessed using heart flushes and direct count of blood flukes under a microscope. This is very time consuming and requires working with fresh samples, thus limiting the number of fish which can be processed at any one time. As a result it is difficult to accurately monitor the dynamics of infection to assess effects of treatments or other husbandry strategies.

Description
Existing samples stored in RNAlater from control Atlantic salmon and salmon infected with Neoparamoeba perurans collected at three different timepoints (eight fish in each group at each time) early in the infection will be analysed for gene expression to characterise the Th1/Th2 immune response elicited during amoebic gill disease of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).This is a collaborative project using existing samples of which results will be published jointly by the investigators.
