Laura Teigen, M.S.
Research Associate & Lab Manager
Background: My educational and research background spans a wide variety of fields and reflects my passion for all things science. I began my undergraduate career studying both biology and psychology, with an emphasis on how genetics play a role in psychological and physical disorders. In graduate school, I studied metabolic and genetic responses to thermal stress in fish. After obtaining my Master's Degree, I began working in a lab researching parasitic nematodes and lymphatic filariasis. A final jump in fields has landed me in a lab studying muscle physiology.
Outside the Lab: Depending on the season, I enjoy camping, canoeing, hiking, and snowboarding. I also enjoy reading and sewing, and am an avid hockey fan.
