Joyce Chandler, DVM email@example.com Physiology I began working in Dr. Van Scott’s lab in 2000 as an undergraduate, when his nonhuman primate model of allergic asthma was in its infancy. Here I was trained by people who had 20 years of experience in proper laboratory procedures and animal handling, and I learned the fine points of pulmonary function testing. This experience also inspired me to pursue Lab Animal Medicine as a career, so I went to veterinary school. I had the opportunity to continue working with Dr. Van Scott’s team performing preclinical testing of asthma therapeutics during breaks from veterinary school. In addition, I had the opportunity to assist the veterinarians in caring for the allergic nonhuman primate colony at ECU during completion of an internship in Laboratory Animal Medicine in the Department of Comparative Medicine in 2010. For family reasons, after graduating from veterinary school, I returned to GreenvilIe, NC and continue to provide veterinary care for the allergic nonhuman primates and conduct pulmonary function testing in Dr. Van Scott’s lab as a postdoctoral researcher.
