Resident, Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM)
Dr. Skorupski began her research career with wildlife and agricultural studies both within the local community and internationally while at the University of Illinois. Her work with lab animals began in veterinary school during a summer fellowship where she refined bacterial detection methods for the Gnotobiotic Core at the University of Michigan and continued through the following years with various opportunities to better acquaint herself with the field.
After graduating from Michigan State University, Dr. Skorupski completed a yearlong small animal internship with the Atlantic Coast Veterinary Specialists where she worked for the emergency, internal medicine, cardiology, neurology, and surgical departments.
Dr. Skorupski’s clinical and research interests include anesthetics and analgesia, animal welfare, and the genetic evolution and spread of emerging/zoonotic diseases.
