Stephanie Lam

Project 21 - 06

Dr. Stephanie Lam is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Lacombe Research and Development Centre. She obtained her M.Sc. (2016) and Ph.D. (2020) at the University of Guelph, Centre for Genetic Improvement of Livestock, where she studied feed efficiency in beef and dairy cattle using high-throughput -OMICs technologies. Stephanie is currently working under the supervision of Dr. Manuel Juárez in the Livestock Phenomics program. Her current projects involve improving the understanding of the transformation of muscle tissue to meat at the molecular level, using molecular methods for improved phenotyping for muscle fibre type composition, comparison of technologies to measure meat quality and carcass traits, and evaluation of factors influencing carcass primal cut-out composition. Her aim is to improve the sustainability, profitability, and efficiency of the Canadian livestock and meat industry and continue to transfer and translate research knowledge.
