Judith Celebrates 25 Years at UW!

Group at Sardine

Opening the card box
Group bingo

2015 marks Prof. Burstyn's 25th year as a professor at UW-Madison. To celebrate, the group took Judith out to brunch at Sardine. Little did she know that we had invited alumni Dr. Aaron Smith, Dr. Jeff Hirsch, and Dr. Heather Carr! In addition to seeing some familiar faces, we also presented Judith with a box full of cards and notes from past group members, colleagues, friends, and collaborators. During our planning of the event, the current group played "Judith Bingo" using her quirks and habits. As "revenge" we gave her a giant bingo card about the group!


Science Expeditions

Matt Dent outreach
Rebeca outreach
Outreach table

On Saturday March 21st, the Burstyn group participated in Science Expeditions - the University of Wisconsin's annual STEM open house. We had a table featuring hands-on activities about how we need iron in our diets, the role of hemoglobin in oxygen transport, and the issues caused by sickle cell anemia. This event is the third time we have showcased themes from our research for the public and we hope to to do it again! Matt Dent was even featured in an article in the Daily Cardinal about the event!
