UP: Ana Martinez-Donate and Martin Zanni. The two UW professors win the Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers. Martinez-Donate is recognized for her work studying migration and the spread of HIV; Zanni for studying how molecules linked to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's develop and move in the body.
DOWN: UW-Whitewater. Last week saw the third apparent hate crime of the semester, when three black students found their cars vandalized and spray-painted with "KKK." Um, does anyone remember that this is, like, 2010?
