Haley Wagner
Research Associate 
Q: What excites you about science?

A: I’m excited by how you can use science to help people and cure illnesses, the endless possibilities, the creativity aspect combined with the critical thinking aspect, understanding how things work, and discovering and learning new things constantly.

Q: What is your favorite fun fact?

A: Kindness is contagious.

Q: What do you do in your free time?

A: I like to cook, bake (and decorate), crafts and DIY, adventure with my chameleon, crossfit, run, hike, and explore state parks, blog, research/read about scientific topics and journal articles to improve my understanding and to be able to think of my own experiments, spend time with my Nana and Papa, guitar, hiking, biking, sell painted shells for charity, throw knives, and sew.

Q: What is the coolest thing you have done at Abveris or what is your favorite memory of working here?

A: It's really hard to choose just one. My favorite part of Abveris is working with such incredible people. I have a favorite memory with each person specifically, but my favorite memory as a group is the company party because I got to introduce my blood family to my work family. The coolest things I have done is a tie between getting the opportunity to attend and present at PEGS, getting to decorate the lab/office areas, when we troubleshoot and are able to get good sequence results from a difficult clone, and I'm extra excited about being able to contribute to develop ion channel antibodies.

Chloe Emery
Senior Vivarium Manager
Q: What’s your favorite fun fact?

A: Did you know a rat can tread water for up to 3 days, and hold its breath underwater for 3 minutes?! That's how they can climb up your toilet.

Q: What excites you about science?

A: There are no mistakes in science, just temporary setbacks. Every misstep teaches you something that will help you succeed in the future.

Q: What do you do in your free time?

A: During the summer, I'm at the beach every waking moment that I'm not here at Abveris. In the colder months I'm at home knitting or painting. I'm also back in school for my Veterinary Nursing degree through Purdue's College of Veterinary Medicine, so that takes up a good chunk of time.

Q: What is your favorite memory of working at Abveris?

A: This is a really tough question! I feel like I do a lot of laughing here. Everyone is jokester, and they all enjoy taking a few moments out of their day to mess with each other. So I think all of my favorite memories are of pranks or someone jumping out to try and scare you. Or Brian singing about his chicken sandwich all day...
