Research Profile

Sarah Culloty

Biography

Prof.  Sarah Culloty is Head of the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences and Director of the Environmental Research Institute at UCC. Prof. Culloty's main area of research interest is in ecological parasitology wth a particular focus on molluscan diseases. Research centres on pathogen life cycles, epidemiology, diagnostics and approaches to ameliorate impacts of disease.

Research Interests

The main emphasis of my research is in the area of ecological parasitology and immunology. Much of the  research focuses on diseases of commercially significant bivalve shellfish (oysters, clams, mussels, scallops, cockles) but research is also ongoing on other groups (crabs, polychaetes, gastropods, tunicates) on general aspects of invertebrate biology such as reproduction. Disease research is on host:parasite interactions, epidemiology, parasite life cycles, diagnostics and mathematical modelling of host:parasite interactions.

EDUCATION

I am a Judge in the National  BT Young Scientist Competition held each January in the RDS in Dublin


WITH INDUSTRY

My work has a strong industry focus and I have ongoing collaborations with industry partners and associations throughout Europe. Examples of industry led projects I have collaborated on include EU CRAFT project, EU FP7 BEADS, BIVALIFE, EUROSHELL (led by European Mollusc Producers Association) and OYSTERECOVER  projects.


2012-2020 Member of an International Advisory Board at the University of Bordeaux, France, on developing a Centre of Excellence in Coastal Ecosystems (Labex Cote)

2012-Present Member of a DG Research Working Group looking at increasing collaborations on shellfish diseases between EU, Australia and New Zealand

I was invited to participate at the EU Reference Laboratory for Mollusc Diseases Annual Meeting in Brest, France March 2008 to discuss current issues re shellfish health in EU.


6 of my publications are cited and used as a guide in the intergovernmental World Organisation for Animal Health (www.oie.int) Manual of Diagnostic Tests for Aquatic Animals - Chapter on Screening for Mollusc Diseases. This manual provides the screening guidelines for all animal diseases used by Regulatory Authorities

My papers are cited in a number of policy documents from The European Food Safety Authority e.g. Scientific opinion in EFSA journal 20108(11):1894.
