The Department of Laboratory Animal Medicine Staff are trained in the care and use of laboratory animals and play an important supportive role in your research. Our facility requires that all DLAM staff working with animals become AALAS certified (American Association for Laboratory Animal Science). This ensures that our staff are skilled and knowledgeable in the many aspects of the laboratory animal science environment. Currently we have 15 full time staff members which are comprised of the Director and Veterinarian, Assistant Director, Facility Manager, Facility Supervisor, Veterinary Technician, Administrative Coordinator, four Lab Animal Technicians, and five Lab Animal Attendants. We also employ part time graduate students who are well trained in the aspects of laboratory animal care that they are tasked to perform.
