My goal at JAX-GM is to provide support for everyone within a Principal Investigator’s group wherever necessary, to the best of my ability. Most often this entails wearing many hats…

Many PIs are new to JAX-GM, which itself is a new facility, recently built adjacent to the UConn Health Center. Since all in vivo experiments are conducted off site at UCHC, we need to comply with IACUC regulations set forth by both institutions: UCHC and The Jackson Laboratory. With this, one of my roles is to act as the liaison between UCHC, the JAX-GM PI (and/or the laboratory staff), and Bar Harbor.

I work with PIs and their labs to help design and implement research experiments. These studies cannot begin until an approved protocol is in place. I provide technical writing assistance for PIs (new protocol development, amendments, annual reviews, etc.) to ensure regulatory compliance with all local, state, federal, and accrediting agencies. Simultaneously, I guide people through obtaining access to the UCHC campus and their IT network. After all protocols go through the approval process I provide assistance with mouse purchases and subsequent billing reconciliation. The final role is to provide hands-on in vivo support with ongoing research projects.
