The thought of eating insects is stomach turning for many, but new Edith Cowan University research is shedding light on allergy causing proteins which could pose serious health risks for those suffering from shellfish allergy.

The project was led by Professor Michelle Colgrave from ECU’s School of Science and the CSIRO.
