Manatee Reproductive Health

Elizabeth Brammer-Robbins earned a B.S. in Animal Science and a minor in Applied Ecology at North Carolina State University (NCSU). She focused on equine breeding and reproductive physiology as well as endangered species conservation. After graduating from NCSU, Elizabeth spent 2 years on sea turtle nesting population ecology programs in St. Croix and Jumby Bay, Antigua. In the off seasons she worked at an Emergency and Trauma Animal Hospital.  

In May of 2019, she was awarded the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship and is now a second-year master’s student in physiological sciences. Elizabeth’s research focus is to develop a diagnostic lipid panel for reproductive health in the Florida Manatee. After a year of experimental design planning the project is underway! Her long-term goal is to investigate reproductive challenges faced by threatened or endangered species. Elizabeth hopes to be able to use her research findings to contribute to the conservation of these species. Outside of classes and research, Elizabeth spends her free time making watercolor paintings, getting together with friends, and exploring nature parks.
