Assistant Professor, Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM)
Dr. Pallas joined the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM) as a Faculty Veterinarian in July 2020 after completing his postdoctoral fellowship in laboratory animal medicine with ULAM and the University of Michigan (U-M). Prior to his time at U-M, Pallas completed his undergraduate training (genomics and molecular genetics) and veterinary degree at Michigan State University.
Dr. Pallas’ research interests are directed toward the design, production, clinical management, and phenotypic analysis of genetically-modified large animal models. In collaboration with U-M’s CAMTraST Lab, his research specifically focuses on the development of an immunodeficient rabbit model for therapeutic CRISPR-based gene editing.
