Research Assistant II
After graduating from the University of Maine in 2014, I came to JAX in the summer of 2015 as an animal care trainee. Within six months, Laura Robinson hired me as a Research Assistant. In this role, I am responsible for scheduling, behavioral phenotyping, DNA extraction, retro orbital eye bleeds, database development and I help direct four research assistants in the lab. I am also currently enrolled in Husson’s MBA program. This opportunity is broadening my skill sets both scientifically and managerially, and improving the array of skill sets that are compulsory for successfully managing a lab.
