Naked Mole-Rat au Natural

Jouvay Pantophlet, Laboratory Animal Technician, College of Staten Island

Naked mole-rats have been studied in laboratories for decades due to their unique ability to offer insights into new treatments for everything from cancer to epilepsy.  Data from animal studies, however, is only as good as the welfare of the animals being studied.  Therefore, Jouvay's research looks into ensuring that these tiny heroes are kept in enclosures which mimic their natural habitat as closely as possible.

Our guest speaker, Jouvay Pantophlet, is a self-proclaimed Professional Pooper-Scooper.  They have been lucky enough to be a researcher of freshwater turtles, sea turtles, birds, and mice as well as a zookeeper at the Staten Island Zoo and a certified dog trainer.  Currently, they are a Laboratory Animal Technician at the College of Staten Island.  Their research focuses on increasing the health, happiness, and overall welfare of the animals that participate in research at CSI.

Q&A to follow.
