IHA Director Prof Linda Partridge honoured with BBSRC Excellence Award

IHA Director, Professor Linda Partridge, has been recognised with a BBSRC Anniversary Award for Excellence in Bioscience.

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) has recognised outstanding contributions to bioscience made by four of its research community. As part of BBSRC’s 20th anniversary, the awards demonstrate pride for the UK's world-leading bioscience research base and the impact it has achieved in the last two decades.

The awards will be presented at the Great British Bioscience Festival in November.

Professor Jackie Hunter, BBSRC Chief Executive, said: "Our 20th anniversary year is the perfect time to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of researchers that BBSRC has supported. These awards highlight outstanding achievements that benefit us all and help to make the UK world-leading in bioscience."

Congratulations Linda!

Gems Lab News Winter Roundup

11 March 2013

Congratulations to Dr. Cassandra Coburn, who was awarded her Ph.D. in December for her thesis entitled “The biology of death in Caenorhabditis elegans”. See Cassie talk about her research here. New members of the lab: Rosina Prior joined the lab in the Autumn as an M.Res. student and, following in Cassie’s footsteps, is investigating the biology of rigor mortis in C. elegans. In April Dr Marina Ezcurra will join the lab. Marina did her Ph.D. with Bill Schafer at the MRC-Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. David Gems is continuing to focus on application of Misha Blagosklonny’s hyperfunction theory of ageing to C. elegans. He recently wrote a review with Linda Partridge on the recent, profound conceptual changes in the ageing field [Genetics of longevity in model organisms: debates and paradigm shifts. Gems D, Partridge L. Annu Rev Physiol. 2013 75: 621-644], and this month presented this work to scientists at Newcastle University’s Institute of Ageing and Health, where he discussed the relative merits of the disposable soma and bloated soma theories with Dr Daryl Shanley and Prof Thomas von Zglinicki, among others.
