  • iDesign’s lab planner assigned to the Poolesville Animal Center project has a Ph.D. in Animal Science as well as having grown up on a family-owned dairy farm.  This combined experience was recognized and appreciated by the NIH animal care staff, which established a high level of confidence, ease of communications and a rapport among all team members. Additional, they were able to apply their scientific analytical skills in assessing animal demographics, projections and establish research trends in which to base future projections.
