Description of research and teaching

Satu Pyörälä's research focuses on bovine intramammary infection (mastitis). Mastitis has remained a major problem in the dairy production, reducing milk quality and causing the biggest economic losses. Mastitis is also a food safety issue, due to bacteria and their toxins as well as possible antibiotic residues in the milk. At present, the on going projects deal with ecology, epidemiology, diagnostics, treatment, economy and prevention of pathogen-specific mastitis.
