About the Author

John Bogdanske

After graduating from Augustana College, John started his research career in 1986 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Nutritional Sciences working with dietary fiber and the nutritional value of common foods. In 1991 he moved to the School of Veterinary Medicine on the Madison campus to take the position of Lab Manager in the Comparative Orthopaedic Research Laboratory (CORL), Department of Medical Sciences. The CORL's mission was to investigate fundamental orthopaedic problems that affected either animals or humans in order to identify the mechanisms that cause disease or to develop treatments that would enhance the lives of individuals affected with these diseases. In 2004 he joined the Research Animal Resources Center (RARC) as a Training Coordinator. Along with Scott, Margaret and Beth, he helps develop, manage, and present a comprehensive training program to all UW-Madison research animal users and related staff. John is an active member of Laboratory Animal Welfare Training Exchange (LAWTE) and the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS). John spends most of his free time with his family usually playing in the outdoors (on a bike).
