Kiranpreet Kaur, from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Sea Lice Research Center, was presented with the Young Scientist Award, sponsored by Novartis Animal Health (NAH) at Sea Lice 2014 in Portland Maine for her ground breaking work on the mechanism behind azamethiphos resistance in salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis).  NAH will host Ms. Kaur on a visit to the NAH Research Center at Saint-Aubin, Switzerland later in the year to meet with leading NAH scientists to learn more about novel pharmaceutical developments and revolutionary new technologies in fish parasitology and present her work to the NAH researchers.

“Being selected as the latest Young Scientist Award winner is an exciting honor,” said Kiranpreet. “Having the opportunity to visit the Novartis Animal Health Research Center in Switzerland, and engage with NAH scientists there, is a highlight for me and offers real development possibilities for my future research.”
