Kaisa Kyöstilä - FinlandBIOGRAPHY:

I’m currently working as a Ph.D student in the Canine Genetics Research Group in Helsinki, Finland. Our research group is led by Professor Hannes Lohi, and our research interests encompass a variety of different genetic traits in dogs. I my own research projects, I’ve been focusing on inherited chondrodysplasia and cerebellar degeneration in a few different breeds. Whenever possible, our research findings will be translated into genetic tests that can be utilized by dog owners and breeders.
