Time at Envigo

Brad has been in the industry for over 18 years and has been leading the Envigo North American Surgery team for the past three years. 

Best parts of the job

“Knowing that what we are doing is contributing to the health and well being of people” is his favorite part of the job.

Why science?

“I was inspired by a second year university biopsychology course. The professor spoke a lot about medical research and this set me on my course of where I am today. I had never thought about this field before that day.”
