ULAM Resident

Job Title

Resident, Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM)


Dr. Esvelt began her career in laboratory animal science as an undergraduate, working in a reproductive toxicology lab with rodent models. After college, she worked for a non-profit neuroscience company as a transgenic mouse colony manager, became LAT certified, and managed whole-brain tissue collection, both fresh and perfused. Dr. Esvelt's interest in animal welfare led her to vet school and her experience at the University of Michigan as an ASLAP Research Fellow made her want to return for the residency program.



Dr. Esvelt's research interests include teaching and training, animal enrichment, and pain and analgesia research.
