CA Testing
The DNA testing service was approved by Cambridge University last week, and the genetics team can now begin the process of recruiting staff to perform this function. The Italian Spinone CA Test will not need development as they already have everything in place to run the assay, but it could take a few months before DNA testing service will be up and running whilst recruitment takes place.

Epilepsy Research
We will shortly be posting the pathway for collection of swabs to continue with our epilepsy research. Once this has been published we will be able to start sending out swab kits and the necessary documentation to those who have kindly volunteered their dog's DNA for this research.
