Before coming to OMRF in 2019, my research centered on an infectious model of inflammatory bowel disease in immunocompetent mice. I am currently interested in the role of husbandry as a potential research variable and gnotobiotic mouse techniques.
At the University of Illinois—Urbana Champaign College of Veterinary Medicine, I served as Associate Director, Division of Animal Resources, and Clinical Associate Professor. Prior to that, I held positions as a veterinarian and veterinary consultant in Illinois, New York and Missouri. I am also certified by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine.
As Director of OMRF’s Comparative Medicine Department, I oversee operations for the Laboratory Animal Resource Center, which encompasses more than 75,000 square feet in 3 separate facilities. Our department also coordinates and provides training on the care and use of animals for OMRF faculty, staff and trainees.
