    Biography
      Brianna received her BS from Kansas State University in 2004 and PhD in Animal Behavior and Well-being from Purdue University in 2011. After graduation, she spent 2.5 years as a postdoctoral research scientist at Charles River. She returned to Purdue University in 2014 and was recently awarded tenure. Her research focuses on developing new animal welfare assessment methodologies, rodent well-being, and elucidating the scientific impact of welfare problems in animal based research. Her previous research has covered behavioral and physiological thermoregulation of mice in laboratories and its impact on mouse well-being. Additionally she has been involved in developing new and improved types of cognitive testing for mice that are used in psychiatric and neuroscience research. Brianna has published in the behavior and well-being, laboratory animal, and experimental psychology literatures and has given presentations on her work nationally and internationally. Her research contributions have been acknowledged by receiving the highly commended paper prize from the NC3R's in 2015, the prize for exceptional service in laboratory animal science from the Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association, and the New Investigator Award from the International Society for Applied Ethology in 2013. Recently she was honored to consult with NASA about mouse welfare on the international space station.

    Abstract

    Conspecific aggression is a common problem amongst laboratory housed male mice. While C57BL/6  are not the most aggressive strain we house, they are exceedingly common, and dealing with conspecific aggression in this strain and others is a common. This session will delve into recent literature addressing home cage aggression in mice to review results from multiple strategies instituted to attempt to behaviorally manage aggression in male mice. This session will review the biology of aggression in mice, the characterization of aggression, and the effect of multiple intervention strategies, specifically the effect of weaning age and different enrichments on conspecific aggression in C57BL/6  male mice.
