Reetta Hinttala

I received my PhD degree in studies on mitochondrial complex I deficiencies in the Department of Neurology at the University of Oulu. I carried out my post doctoral studies at Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University, Canada, in prof. Eric Shoubridge's laboratory as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow. After returning back to the Oulu University, I worked as an Academy of Finland Research Fellow in the division of pediatric neurology of the PEDEGO research unit at the University of Oulu. In 2018, I started as a coordinator of the Biocenter Oulu Transgenic core facility and the Finnish Infrafrontier/EMMA (European Mouse Mutant Archive) node. Currently, I'm Associate Professor (tenure track) at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oulu, and I'm focused on studying severe neurological disorders in children.
