I work as a Senior Geneticist in the Clinical Interpretation team at Blueprint Genetics. My main responsibilities are to analyse and interpret the NGS data and to write clinical reports together with the clinicians.
I joined Blueprint Genetics on June 2015. I have a Master’s degree in human genetics (University of Helsinki, 2003) and a PhD in cancer genetics (University of Helsinki, 2009). After the PhD, Icontinued as a postdoctoral researcher in the same field and applied next-generation sequencing technologiesin cancer research. My long-time dream has been to work in the field of genetic diagnostics, which is becoming as a part of the mainstream healthcare. At BpG, I’m able to help patients with rare diseases by providing them high-quality genetic diagnostics. I really enjoy working in the fast-paced environment with other enthusiastic people and take every patient case I open as a challenge.
