in memoriam

Working in a biomedical research lab means that we have witnessed animals that we have spent time observing, caring for, befriending, and loving become ill or injured (as a result of research protocols or due to the rigors of laboratory life) or die of natural or unnatural causes. Sometimes their deaths haunt us for years. On this page, we honor the memories of those we have lost. Please email Rachel Weiss ( if you’d like to contribute a memorial to this page.
