I am a Senior Research Specialist, back in the Transgenic Core/ESC Shared Resource after 11 years in Mark Magnuson's lab.  I have a B.S. in Animal Science and a M.S. in Equine Reproductive Physiology from the University of Kentucky. My husband Henry is an attorney and songwriter (hence the move to Nashville) and we have 2 children, Claire and Zach, both now college graduates. Thank you Vanderbilt Tuition Benefit! Our empty nest has been filled by Maggie, a lab mutt who keeps us walking.
