Fabrizio met with Embark CEO Ryan Boyko and his brother Adam Boyko at the Yard Bar on Burnett Road in Austin, Texas to find out more about the new Dog DNA test they’ve designed. Dog owners brought their furry family members to socialize with the other dogs and to have a chance for their pets to become beta testers for the company at the kick-off event on April 7th. AMFM has a new puppy mascot “Sarah” who was so thrilled to be a beta tester, she almost chewed the swab we were using to pieces. Sarah will share her results when we get the test back.
Embark is building a community of dedicated and knowledgeable dog owners, scientists and veterinarians dedicated to advancing canine health and genetic research. Adam Boyko (Chief Science Officer) and Spencer Wells (Chief Product Officer) are leading the effort to allow owners to become involved in canine genetic research with their own pets – by sending in DNA and information about their dog – and taking science outside the lab to make discoveries that impact canine health and wellness. The company is being led by CEO Ryan Boyko.
