Elizabeth Quamme

My name is Elizabeth Quamme, and I am a laboratory technician in VCU's Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology. I have held this position for almost three years, and very much enjoy the fast-paced nature of laboratory work. I hold a master's degree in marine biology from University College Cork, and both a B.A. and B.S. from Virginia Wesleyan College. In my free time, I enjoy knitting and swimming, as well as napping with my two (fat) cats.

I have been working in my laboratory for the last 2.5 years, and have had many opportunities to work with some incredible people in this community. While I am comfortable calling the shots, I love being part of a large, vibrant team, and I especially enjoy the opportunities for collaboration that come with. I want to listen to and work with my fellow staff members to advocate for a happier, healthier work environment for all staff members.
