Lauren Baker, DVM, MS

University of Wisconsin

Lauren Baker, MS, DVM is a postdoctoral trainee and PhD candidate in the Comparative Orthopaedic Research Laboratory and Comparative Genetics Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. She is generally interested in concept of One Health such that one can use insights gained from the study of companion animal populations to inform human medical research. During veterinary medical training she became interested in the genetic contribution to the risk of disease. She participated in the NIH Pre-doctoral 12-month Scholars Program for Veterinary Students and received her Master of Science in Comparative Biomedical Sciences for her work on the genetic basis of non-contact cranial cruciate ligament rupture in dogs. She received her DVM in 2016 and soon after was appointed to the National Library of Medicine Computation and Informatics in Biology and Medicine training program as a Postdoctoral Trainee. This program provides bioinformatics training to medical professionals and has allowed her to continue study of the genetic basis of complex trait disease using the canine model.
