Professor Abigail Elizur has been involved in the application of molecular biology and biotechnology to aquaculture since 1990 when she joined the National Centre for Mariculture in Eilat, Israel, where she led the work on fish reproductive endocrinology. In 1999 Professor Elizur returned to Australia, and joined the Bribie Island Aquaculture Research Centre, where she initiated the aquaculture biotechnology group that links with other aquaculture discipline. Professor Elizur joined USC part-time in 2004 and is now the Director of the GeneCology Research Centre.
