Lab alumna starts practicing veterinary medicine

Congratulations to former lab member Carrie LaCava who recently graduated from The Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine and will begin practicing in southern Illinois.  Carrie will be working in a practice with five other doctors conducting appointments and surgeries with both large and small animals, including farm visits.

While an undergraduate at Ashland University Carrie worked in my lab to produce the first proteomic map of the adult zebrafish lens using two-dimensional gel electrophoresis.  Another student and I are now writing up a follow up study examining how the protein content of zebrafish lenses changes during the development of the lens.  These studies will allow us to better understand the protein damage that causes lens cataracts, as well as provide foundational information on the roles that lens proteins called crystallins play in the development of the lens.
