Mentored Research Experience

The research project, which will occur during year 2, will either be a collaborative project in the lab of a U of C faculty member or a clinical laboratory animal medicine project within the department. The aims are for the trainee to:

  • Conduct individual and collaborative research
  • Complete research project that involves writing an IACUC protocol, performing literature searches, developing hypotheses, collecting data, performing statistical evaluations, writing and submitting a paper for publication in a peer-reviewed journal
  • Present research findings or other topics at local/national meetings


Some recent research project titles:

  • Comparing Mouse (Mus musculus) Soiled Bedding Sentinel Health Monitoring with Exhaust Air Dust Surveillance Programs
  • Comparative Hematopoietic Repopulating Assay in Clonal Zebrafish Using CRISPR Mutants
  • Can long term use of the antibiotic sulfadiazine trimethoprim lead to cardiomyopathy and cardiac dysfunction in mice (Mus musculus)?
