Anna Kay Gierow - Animal Sciences/pre-vet

Anna Kay Gierow

Animal sciences/pre-vet senior Anna Kay Gierow’s research focuses on furthering knowledge of why embryo development and implantation occur within mammals. Specifically, Gierow helps with the translation of RNA to help further understand regulatory venues that drive RNA synthesis in oocytes. She says this research could benefit society by allowing more selection among agricultural animals. Gierow says the experience she has gained from this research project has broadened her horizons on the possibilities within animal sciences and that rigorous courses and great mentorship from the College of Agriculture prepared her for working in a research lab.
