Ahna Skop headshotAhna Skop

Ahna Skop, a Professor in the Department of Genetics, has been at UW–Madison since 2004. Her lab seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie cell polarity and cell division during embryonic development using the nematode, C. elegans as a model system. Failures in asymmetric cell division often lead to birth defects, age-related diseases and cancer. Understanding how cells divide asymmetrically is highly dependent on in vivo microscopy and large amounts of visual data, which dovetails perfectly with one of her other passions, art. The combination of scientist and artist inspires her to think differently and maintain an open mind. In 2008, she was awarded an honorary doctorate of science from the College of St. Benedicts and was named a Remarkable Women in Science from the AAAS. Her science and art have been featured by Apple and Science.

Joyce J. and Gerald A. Bartell Award in the Arts

They use media such as performance, video, photography, and design, but what matters most is the engagement of participants–they often say “the conversation IS the art.” They have staged mini-festivals of small-scale art experiences at home (such as their pandemic response, Home Stretch) and abroad including work on six continents. They frequently work with organizations to create works that offer new approaches to old conversations. They often share food as part of their work, and have created a series of Foodways projects around the world; the latest, in the Philippines, focused on Hunger.
