Thirty interesting years brought me from a zygote to a professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I spent the next 30 years working in Birge Hall – in the same office and lab, sitting at the same desk, and on the same wooden chair! Now it is somebody else’s turn. I hope they have as much fun and satisfaction in the role as I did.
