Extracurricular Activities of the VandeWoude Laboratory

Extracurricular Activities

The VandeWoude Lab (aka Sue VandeWoude Research Group, SVRG), while passionate about good science, is also actively involved in the great activities that Fort Collins and the surrounding area have to offer. SVRG members may be seen competing in local running and cycling events, getting out of escape rooms, touring local breweries and enjoying the Colorado wilderness.

Members of the SVRG believe in finding a proper work-life balance which often seems to involve a ‘work hard – play hard’ lifestyle. We understand that some late nights and weekends spent at the lab bench or huddled over a laptop are essential elements of any worthwhile intellectual pursuit. However, we are also the first to celebrate the end of the semester, the awarded grant, an accepted paper, and for some of us, the sweet glory of graduation.


SVRG competed with the other Pathology second floor labs in a bowling competition. Coming in 2nd SVRG represented themselves well!

SVRG travelled to Happy Jack Ski area to do a little cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
