Jamie Ahloy Dallaire
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Comparative Medicine
Bio Dr. Jamie Ahloy Dallaire received his B.Sc. in Biology from McGill University (2004-2007), in Montréal, Québec, then went on to study the behavior and welfare of captive animals with Dr. Georgia Mason at the University of Guelph, in Ontario. There, his M.Sc. work (2008-2011) pertained to abnormal repetitive behaviors and environmental enrichment in American mink and in Asiatic black bears. In his doctoral research (2011-2015), Dr. Ahloy Dallaire studied the developmental benefits and functions of play in mink and in lambs. Since 2015, he has been working on automated behavioral assessment of pain in laboratory mice, with Dr. Joseph Garner in the Department of Comparative Medicine at Stanford University.
Dr. Ahloy Dallaire's animating purpose is to decrease the negative impacts of biomedical research on laboratory animal welfare, and to deliver better outcomes for human patients through improved research. He believes that good welfare makes for good science, and that these two goals can be achieved in conjunction through a focus on the 3Rs: the principles of replacement, reduction, and refinement in laboratory animal research (hhttp://nc3rs.org.uk/the-3rs). As an applied ethologist, he specializes in behavioral assessment of animal emotions and behavioral animal model development. He also collaborates with preclinical and clinical researchers on aspects of experimental design and statistical analysis to help them conduct powerful and informative experiments, while limiting overall animal use.
Dr. Ahloy Dallaire's work has been recognized with awards from organizations including the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare, and the Ontario Graduate Scholarship. He is a member of the International Society for Applied Ethology, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, and the Stanford Medicine Teaching and Mentoring Academy.
