Stacey Meeker , Ph.D.
Department of Comparative Medicine
School of Medicine
University of Washington
Stacey Meeker received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from The Ohio State University in 2010 and began a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Washington in the Department of Comparative Medicine the same year. While completing her residency focusing on Laboratory Animal Medicine and Comparative Pathology, Dr. Meeker is also pursuing her PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology under the mentorship of Dr. Lillian Maggio-Price and Dr. William Grady.
Dr. Meeker’s research interests focus around inflammation-associated colorectal cancer and mouse models that can be used to better elucidate the mechanisms linking inflammation and cancer. She is particularly interested in evaluating the chemoprotective effects of vitamin D in several mouse models of colorectal cancer.
