Seraina Jaeger studied veterinary medicine at the University of Zürich from 2009-2015. Since her graduation, she works as practicing veterinarian for farm and small animals in Switzerland. In July 2015 she started her doctoral thesis supervised by Prof. Paul Torgerson and Dr. Simon Rüegg. In the course of her thesis she investigates if the identification of acute phase proteins in milk (in particular Amyloid A) is as sensitive as or more sensitive than the somatic cell count for mastitis diagnosis, using bacteriological culture as the gold standard. Furthermore she wants to detect if acute phase proteins in milk would be suitable markers not only for clinical but also for subclinical mastitis.
Seraina left our group to work as resident at the ruminant clinic of the University of Zurich.
