Jamie Bojko


Dr. Jamie Bojko has a B.Sc. Hons. degree in Genetics (IND) and a PhD in aquatic pathology from the University of Leeds (UK). His B.Sc. and Ph.D. were both completed in association with the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Sciences (Cefas) - a global leader in aquatic pathology and diagnostics, situated in the UK. Jamie is now an associate professor at Teesside University and has contributed to multiple academic books, and authored over 60 peer-reviewed publications. He is consultant faculty at the University of Florida, where he was a postdoctoral researcher in aquatic disease ecology; and he is a scientific advisor for the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR) charity. Jamie's research, and the broader Bojko Laboratory team, now explore the advanced detection and systematic description of parasites, and promote the conservation of marine animals (such as seal populations) via rapid disease diagnostic technology, with an overall aim to determine both the diversity and impact of (invasive) parasites upon native or non-native communities, and the environment.
