​Session 1 (10:45 - 11:45): Zooming In: A Microscopic-to-Molecular Perspective for Modeling Chromosomes

Session 2 (12:45 - 1:45): What's the Buzz? Exploring the Biology and Technology of CRISPR

Judy Baeten received her B.S. in Biology in 2001 and her M.S. in Biology Education in 2014; both from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Judy taught high school Biology, AP Biology and Physical Science for ten years in the greater Milwaukee area prior to joining the CBM. During her tenure as a teacher, she completed two research fellowships; one with the American Association of Immunologists, and another with the American Physiological Society. Her research experiences included working at UW-Milwaukee investigating the link between regulatory T-cells and tumor growth in murine models with breast cancer, and also at the Medical College of Wisconsin investigating the efficacy of a dual-modulator drug on kidney failure in murine models with metabolic syndrome. Judy also served as an AP Biology Free-Response Rater for 5 years. Judy is the current Program Director for the Local SMART Team Program. She is committed to empowering teachers and students by providing quality outreach programming that incorporates current research topics and science modeling practices both in and out of the classroom.
