I graduated from the University of Bristol in Biochemistry and worked in university research departments in the UK, the Netherlands and USA studying how plants capture light energy in photosynthesis. In 1988, I changed direction, moving to a research position in canine genetics at the AHT and in 2000 set up our canine DNA Testing service.
The Animal Health Trust is a veterinary charity, based in Suffolk, which offers clinical referral services and diagnostic testing for horses, dogs and cats in East Anglia, across the UK and internationally. Through its research programmes it develops new diagnostic tests, treatments and vaccines to help thousands of animals.
