Dr. Corinne Esquibel earned a B.S. in biology from Truman State University followed by a Ph.D. in molecular and cellular pharmacology from University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she studied circuit-level neuroscience using optical imaging methods. She then joined the Laboratory for Optical and Computational Instrumentation (LOCI) at University of Wisconsin as a postdoctoral researcher under the mentorship of Kevin W. Eliceiri. In addition to designing and implementing intravital, in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro imaging studies for a range of research applications, Corinne focused a significant portion of her training on the effective management of microscopy core facilities. In 2017, she joined Van Andel Research Institute as manager of its Confocal Microscopy and Quantitative Imaging Core, which provides comprehensive imaging services to investigators at the VARI and their collaborators.
