Emily E. Binversie, DVM, MS

Postdoctoral Trainee
University of Wisconsin-Madison

Dr. Binversie is a Postdoctoral Trainee who studies genomic structural variation and its contribution to risk of complex disease in a canine model. In 2016 she earned a Masters of Science for her work in copy number variations association with canine cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) rupture in the department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. After earning her DVM in 2018 she was awarded a T32 training grant by the National Institute of Health to undertake PhD training, and is currently working in the Comparative Orthopaedic and Genetics Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine studying the genetic contribution to CrCL rupture, focusing on genomic structural variation.
