Aleata joined our group in October of 2001. She is involved in numerous projects, and she was pivotal in generating and analyzing the WAP knockout mice. In March of 2008, Aleata received the Chancellor’s Council Silver ‘U’ Award. This award is given to UNMC employees, who provide consistent performance that exceeds expectations. On May 12, 2011, Aleata was featured at the UNMC News (Lookin' at U - Aleata Triplett).
