Each year, the UW-Madison chancellor acknowledges outstanding achievements with the Academic Staff Excellence Awards. Chancellor Rebecca Blank recognized nine academic staffers in this year’s awards, including the Department of Surgery’s Lynn Haynes, recipient of the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Research – Critical Support.
Lynn serves as the department’s research operations director, but she spends the majority of her time researching transplant immunology in the labs of Drs. Dixon Kaufman and William Burlingham. Lynn was commended for her excellence in teaching, problem solving, and operations management that helps everyone around her be more efficient. All nine award recipients are featured in a UW-Madison press release.
