I am a scientist at The McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research where we do basic research on cancer.

I work on the genetics of mouse liver cancer. Using different strains of mice, I have mapped genes which increase the risk of cancer development in mice. Click here to learn more about how disease genes are mapped.

I am also a lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison . I teach Oncology 401: Introduction to Experimental Oncology.

My colleagues and I discuss educational issues during Issues in Life Science Education discussion group.

Here is my two-cents on finding a job teaching college biology.

In addition to teaching at the university, I enjoy talking to students of all ages and teachers about HIV/AIDS and cancer.


Here are some links to useful sites about HIV/AIDS.

  • Marty Howard's HIV/AIDS Homepage
  • The HIV Infoweb

    I have three cats.

    Timmy, fat grey, and Squealer the striped one.

    Fang, small black with white paws, long-haired (mother of Squealer)

    These are her other kittens.

    This is Squealer napping in the guitar case.


    And on his birthday.


    Aren't they cute??

    Since I like cats and genetics, I am very interested in cat genetics. Here are some good places to learn more about cat genetics.

  • Cat Fanciers Home Page
  • The Cat Code
  • Some other interesting cat sites:

    The Feline Conservation Center

    I also have four rats.Go to their homepage.
