Tiina Kaarela
I am a first year PhD student in Veterinary Faculty, working mainly in Viikki campus. My project studies the functional and molecular mechanisms of early central nervous system development.

My background is in biochemistry and neurosciences, and my Masters’ studies I did in the University of Tampere. Currently, I am also doing an undergraduate studies for the Licentiate of Veterinary Medicine degree  here in Helsinki. Before starting my PhD, I worked actively as student representative in Veterinary Faculty and also in University Collegium. Now as PhD representative in HiLIFE board, I am happy to be part in developing an active and attractive research environment in our University. If you have any questions, worries or topics related to HiLIFE, I hope you will be in touch!
