I have worked with the Center since 2007 and helped to complete the phenotyping of 74 Tier One strains.  I manage all the colonies for the Animal Core of CGD; this includes parental strains of the Collaborative Cross, and various F2 intercrosses we have set up.   I perform retro-orbital bleeding and chemical analyses, tissue harvesting for RNA and histology, and urine collection. I am currently managing the Collaborative Cross lines and find them very interesting from the animal care view point.  Before joining the Center, I did bench work and managed colonies for Dr. Eva Eicher, who brought many of the wild-derived strains to The Jackson Laboratory.
