ABOUT:  The John L. Fryer Salmon Disease Laboratory (SDL) is a regional fish disease facility dedicated to the study of organisms infectious for salmonids and other species of freshwater fish.  The disinfection of effluent water before it returns to the Willamette River allows studies with infectious agents to be conducted. The laboratory is named for Dr. John L. Fryer, who pioneered the fish disease research program at Oregon State University.  The SDL was constructed through a grant from the Bonneville Power Administration with matching funds from OSU.  The 9,000 square foot facility provides both wet and dry laboratories.

FACILITY UPGRADE:  The SDL is supported by the OSU Department of Microbiology and the OSU College of Science.  The facility has recently received funding for an upgrade.  The funds committed by: OSU Sustainability Office, Research Office, College of Agricultural Sciences, College of Science, Department of Microbiology and the Department of Veterinary Medicine  will supply heated and chilled water between 5°C and 30°C to all indoor experimental tanks, allowing research on warm-water aquatic species and ecological and climate change questions.  We are in the early planning stages of the upgrade and hope for it to be completed in time for a 25th Anniversary Celebration in Spring 2015!
