CVRC trainer, Dr. Gail Robertson, PhD has received a 2018-19 Kellett Mid-Career Award, and Dr. Ying Ge, PhD has been awarded the H.I Romnes Faculty Fellowship.
Gail Robertson (Kellett), professor of neuroscience, studies how excitable cells of the heart and brain produce coordinated electrical activity. Her research led to the development of drug safety tests used worldwide to reduce the risk for life-threatening cardiac side effects. Robertson has had teaching and leadership roles in medical education for 25 years and is co-founder of the UW-Madison’s Master of Science in Biotechnology Program.
Ying Ge (Romnes), associate professor of cell and regenerative biology and chemistry, studies molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying cardiac diseases and regeneration via systems biology approaches featuring high-resolution mass spectrometry-based top-down proteomics. Ge teaches proteomics approaches for biologists. She also serves as director of mass spectrometry in UW-Madison’s Human Proteomics Program.
