To Russia (and Sweden) with Love: Taking AWRI’s Mission of Compassion Worldwide

To Russia (and Sweden) with Love: Taking AWRI’s Mission of Compassion Worldwide
by Dr. Patricia Olson
“I was invited to give a lecture at the newly forming genomic institute at the St. Petersburg State University. Dr. Stephen O’Brien, former head of the Laboratory for Genomic Diversity at the National Institutes of Health, is helping to create the new institute. Dr. O’Brien and I worked together in the United States to help develop a new genetic tool for identifying causes of diseases in a wide variety of cats. There I met young scientists at the institute who are very excited about their future work.”
