Anna Huttenlocher, MD (Professor, Division of Allergy, Immunology, and Rheumatology) was selected for the prestigious WARF Named Professorship award and has chosen the name “Anna Ruth Brummett Professor of Pediatrics and Medical Microbiology and Immunology” for the chair. The award, which carries a $100,000 flexible research fund, honors faculty who have made major contributions to the advancement of knowledge and is one of the highest honors the University of Wisconsin–Madison bestows. The award is provided by the University of Wisconsin­–Madison Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education with funding from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF).
Dr. Huttenlocher’s research at the University of Wisconsin Department of Pediatrics is at the interface of cell biology and immunology. Much of her recent work has centered on understanding innate immune inflammation. Her research group is dissecting how external cues and cell signaling networks regulate cell migration during tissue damage and repair, and how this is altered in human disease. Her laboratory has pioneered approaches to visualize and manipulate cell motility within live organisms and has discovered previously unknown mechanisms that regulate resolution of inflammation.
Dr. Huttenlocher received her BA from Oberlin College and MD from Harvard Medical School.  She is a physician-scientist who treats pediatric patients with autoimmune diseases. She is also director of the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, which provides integrated graduate training in scientific research and clinical medicine.  She is a member of the National Academy of Medicine and a Fellow of the American Society of Cell Biology for Lifetime Achievement. She has served on the Council of the American Society of Clinical Investigation and is currently serving on the Council for the American Society of Cell Biology and the Association of American Physicians.
About Dr. Anna Ruth Brummett
Anna Ruth Brummett, PhD, was a Professor of Biology at Oberlin College. She grew up and attended college in Arkansas and then obtained her PhD at Bryn Mawr College. As an Oberlin professor, she performed research at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, MA, and focused much of her scholarship on developmental cell biology. Dr. Brummett had a special interest in promoting women in science and was Dr. Huttenlocher’s first cell biology and teaching mentor. During an independent study project at Oberlin College, Dr. Brummett guided Dr. Huttenlocher in writing about cell adhesion and migration, an area that became the focus of Dr. Huttenlocher’s research.

In Celebration of National Doctor’s Day, UW Health offered an opportunity for people to submit notes of gratitude to their physician. Over seventy notes were received from current and former families and patients served by Department of Pediatrics faculty. We’re proud to share excerpts of some of them here.

Allergy, Immunology & Rheumatology

For Dr. Judy Smith: Thanks for everything you do for our son and our family. We’ve had a rough few years but having a wonderful, caring team led by you has made it easier to handle. We are so grateful for you and everything you do. Thank you, Dr. Smith!


For Dr. Catherine Allen: Dr. Allen has always made us feel as though we were family by always taking the time to explain everything and answer any questions we have.  Her bedside manner with our son is superb and we feel so comfortable and blessed knowing he is receiving top-notch care from a top-notch professional. Thank you, Dr. Allen!

Endocrinology & Diabetes: 

For Dr. Ellen Connor: Since my diagnosis of Type I diabetes twelve years ago, Dr. Connor has always been there for me and my family. Through her guidance and compassionate care, I have learned to manage my condition. Her influence on my life has inspired me to pursue a nursing career so that someday, I will also be able to make an impact on future patients. Dr. Connor, thank you for your dedication to providing excellent care and going above & beyond to ensure the health of all of your patients. You are appreciated!

Saying Goodbye to a Colleague and Friend: A Tribute to Dr. Jon Wolff

This tribute was contributed by the Wolff Family and Drs. David Wargowski, Patrick Remington, and Elizabeth Petty.
Jon Wolff, MDWe are deeply saddened to share news about the passing of a long-time beloved faculty colleague, Dr. Jon Wolff (pictured left), after a courageous battle with cancer.
Jon was a professor and division chief of genetics and metabolism in pediatrics for most of the 20 years he spent at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Prior to joining our faculty, he received his undergraduate education at Cornell University, received his M.D. from The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, completed clinical training in Pediatrics and Medical Genetics at the University of California-San Diego, and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Agouron Institute. He remained an honorary volunteer faculty member here and was always a strong supporter of our master of genetic counselor studies degree program throughout his career.
As a physician-scientist, Jon made significant contributions to diagnostic and therapeutic knowledge that helped transform the standard-of-care for several different genetic conditions. As an advisory member for Wisconsin’s Newborn Screening Program he helped establish new programs for detecting metabolic disorders and genetic conditions. He also led medical genetics courses for medical students and genetic counseling students over several years, adding cutting-edge molecular content, bringing patients into classrooms as teachers, and greatly improving medical and molecular genetic education throughout various classroom, clinic, and laboratory settings.

New Grants & Awards


2020 St. Baldrick’s Summer Fellowship Awarded to Capitini Lab

Christian Capitini, MDCongratulations to Christian Capitini, MD (Assistant Professor, Division of Hematology, Oncology & Bone Marrow Transplant), who was recently awarded a $5,000 Summer Fellowship from the St. Baldricks’s Foundation, the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, to fund a student in his lab this summer. Nicholas Mohrdieck, currently completing the junior year of his undergraduate studies, will work in Dr. Capitini’s lab on the project, “Vaccine and checkpoint blockade after allogeneic BMT for neuroblastoma,” with the goal of discovering whether a combination of anti-PD1 inhibitors with an engineered costimulatory vaccine may be an effective strategy to induce apoptosis of neuroblastoma tumor cells. This approach seeks to increase T cell and NK-mediated cytokine production and cytotoxicity and investigate whether anti-tumor effects after bone marrow transplant (BMT) are enhanced.

Bruce Klein, MD, Awarded Grant from Vaxine

Bruce Klein, MDBruce Klein, MD (Professor and Division Chief, Division of Infectious Diseases), was recently awarded a one-year, $38,500 grant from Vaxine, an Australian biotechnology company focusing on development of innovative vaccine technologies. The objective of this grant, for the project titled, “Developing Advax adjuvanted vaccine formulation against systemic fungi,” will be to formulate Advax (provided by Vaxine) with protective fungal antigens (provided by the Klein lab) to vaccinate against fungal infections and ultimately to translate the formulation to a human vaccine.

Learner Tribute

Here’s what a student had to say about Michael Kim, MD (Associate Professor (CHS), Pediatric Emergency Medicine):

Michael Kim, MD"Dr. Kim consistently demonstrated respect for patients, residents, and nursing staff. He gave prompt and constructive feedback and taught high-yield topics between seeing patients in an efficient way. He was always kind and caring toward families and made sure they were comfortable with the plan before either admitting or discharging them, and did so in a way that avoided medical jargon and avoided minimizing the patients' and families' concerns. He always made sure to highlight learning points in both simple and complex patient cases, and made resident involvement in patient care one of his priorities. He was truly an excellent educator on my month-long rotation.”
