Heather Sayles | Undergraduate Researcher | saylesh1@msu.edu

Hi, I’m Heather! I’m an undergraduate student in my second year here at MSU. I am studying neuroscience and bioethics, and I plan to attend veterinary school after finishing my undergraduate education. My research is focused on identifying and finding patterns in both uterine and ovarian abnormalities in Mexican wolves. I have presented my work at two conferences so far (Mid-SURE and Phi Zeta Research Day) and plan to continue to share my findings! When I’m not in the lab, you can find me spending time with my family and my three adorable cats, as well as horseback riding and volunteering in my community.
