Gail Robertson, professor of neuroscience, who studies how excitable cells of the heart and brain produce coordinated electrical activity was recently honored with a Kellet mid-career award.  The award was created to provide support and encouragement to faculty who are 7 to 20 years past their first promotion to a tenured position and comes with $75,000 that may be spent over five years. The award is named for William R. Kellett, a former president of the WARF board of trustees and retired president of Kimberly-Clark Corp. Dr. Robertson's research led to the development of drug safety tests used worldwide to reduce the risk for life-threatening cardiac side effects. Additionally, Dr. 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. Congratulations Dr. Robertson! (https://research.wisc.edu/uncategorized/2018/03/15/faculty-recognized-wi...)
