Dr. Phillip Dettleff obtains his DVM degree in the Veterinary Faculty of University of Chile, through the study of selection signatures in genomic regions associated with productive traits in Atlantic salmon. He obtained his Ph.D. in Forestry, Agricultural and Animal Sciences at the University of Chile in 2016. He has participated in several competitive grants as student and researcher, working in the study of transcriptomic of disease resistance to P. salmonis and ISA virus in Atlantic salmon and host-pathogen interaction. Also, has collaborated in the study of developmental biology and productive traits in Yellowtail Kingfish. Currently, he works as researcher in the FAVET-INBIOGEN laboratory of the University of Chile. His area of research focuses in the study of host –pathogen interaction and evasion mechanisms of the immune system of P. salmonis join to the study of biological factor affecting production traits in Yellowtail Kingfish, using genomics and transcriptomics tools.
