Beaker the Cat

Posthumous Science Representative



Beaker was a long-time Las Vegan with over a decade of experience at UNLV. He earned a master's degree in animal science, and his research centered around birds and small animals. A bit of an introvert, Beaker loved enjoying local cuisine with our Dean's Office staff. He was an avid outdoors enthusiast, and loved taking walks around campus, napping, and welcoming everyone to the MPE-A building. Beaker will always be a beloved member of the College of Sciences team.
