Kate graduated from CMB in 2008 and is an Associate Professor of Biology at Loras College in Dubuque, IA.
"I love the challenge and puzzle of trying to find the best way to help my students understand certain concepts in cell biology. I really enjoy getting to know them as people and genuinely enjoy spending time with them in class."
Saheed received his PhD from CMB in 2014 and is currently a Scientist at Synthetic Genomics in La Jolla, CA.
"My role is still very research focused, which is great, and I’m doing work which I enjoy, trying to achieve a goal I believe in (cost effective, sustainable biofuel to help pull us back from the brink of destroying our planet)."
Laura is a Professor of Biology at the University of Richmond, which is a primarily undergraduate institution. She graduated from CMB in 1996.
"UW-Madison’s CMB program was broad enough to allow me to explore several different areas of Biology since I was not sure what area of CMB I wanted to focus on for my dissertation work. Also, the faculty and students seemed very supportive and welcoming. This was especially important because I was a first generation college student, navigating very unfamiliar territory as a graduate student."
