The CISAB lab is staffed by one full-time research associate, Rose Stewart, who joined the lab in November 2007. Rose received her B.A. in Biology from St. Mary's College of Maryland and her Ph.D. in Animal Sciences from the University of Maryland, College Park. Her dissertation research, which was conducted in collaboration with the Smithsonian's National Zoo, focused on reproductive physiology and endocrinology of felids. As part of her research, she was trained in a variety of endocrine and molecular techniques, including EIA, RIA, gene expression analyses, semen analysis and cryopreservation, embryo culture and reproductive histology. Before beginning her graduate program, she was employed as a research assistant at World Wildlife Fund in Washington, DC.
The lab also has one part-time assistant for the 2012-13 academic year, Charli Taylor. Charli recently graduated with distinction from IU Bloomington with a double BA in Biology and Anthropology and a minor in Animal Behavior. Her background is primarily in animal care, where she has worked with both domestic animals and wildlife. She has worked for the Peregrine Fund, re-introducing endangered Aplomado Falcons into the wild, and she is highly involved with WildCare Inc., where she specializes in raptor rehabilitation and serves on the Board of Directors.
