Tiffany Glass, MA, CMI, PhD

Research Associate

Dr. Glass applies research paradigms developed in the Connor Lab to investigations of oromotor phenotypes of mouse models of Down syndrome (DS), with a long-term interest in resolving basic biological knowledge gaps and promoting translational research specific to the vocal communication, feeding, and swallowing challenges associated with DS. Tiffany completed a BA in Zoology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and a MA in Medical & Biological Illustration at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. After a brief period as a medical illustrator, she completed a PhD in Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology & Genetics at the University of Minnesota, where she used zebrafish models to investigate biological mechanisms permitting successful outcomes in hematopoietic cell transplant. She subsequently completed postdoctoral training with the UW-Madison Voice Research Training Program. Tiffany is now applying this interdisciplinary background to the integration of molecular, tissue-level, gross anatomical, and functional investigational techniques to clarify the degree to which mouse models of DS recapitulate vocal communication and deglutition disorders that can pose challenges for individuals with DS.
