JeAnna Redd

Senior Research Assistant, Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Michigan since 2016-08-01. (7 years, 11 months).
Senior Research Assistant, Department of Physiology, University of Tennesee Health Science Center from 2014-10-01 to 2016-06-30. (Oct. 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016)
I joined the Bridges Lab in October of 2014. I am a Memphis native, but moved to Oklahoma to pursue a B.S. in Forensic Science and an M.S. in Biology both from the University of Central Oklahoma. My research interests have previously been in animal behavior (i.e. Calliphoridae and Apidea) as it pertains to forensic science. As a member of the Bridges Lab, I work on/help with a variety of projects as well as facilitate day-to-day lab operations. I am excited to have joined this lab and to gain experience in medical research.
