As part of a recent collaborative exchange with Dr Yani Garcia’s Dairy Science Group at The University of Sydney, Russ gave a guest lecture to students in the Dairy Production class on all things milk, including a hands-on udder dissection practical lab.
Congratulations to Grace Berryhill, recent lab alum and now technical scientist at Jackson Laboratories – on May 22nd, Grace received not one, but 2 major awards!
a) the Kinsella Memorial Prize awarded within the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences for outstanding PhD research, AND
b) the Max Kleiber Memorial Prize awarded for an outstanding dissertation in nutrition and metabolism (for the unacquainted, Dr Kleiber was a former faculty member at UCDavis who is considered to be one of the historical leaders in the field of biochemistry and metabolism: http://animalscience.ucdavis.edu/alumni/memorial/kleiber-max.html)
Grace’s accomplishments were recognized on May 22nd at a Graduate Studies reception. Congratulations Grace!!
Russ recently was part of the University of Sydney’s Dairy Research Symposium in Wagga Wagga at Charles Sturt University. As part of the meeting we were able to demonstrate to dairy producers and others just what is inside the udder!
