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!

Darwin's Birthday Party 2012

3 April 2012

'How Ageing Evolves'

22 February 2012

Dr David Gems participated in the Darwin's Birthday debate held at the
Natural History Museum, along with Dr Daryl Shanley (University of
Newcastle). The topic of the debate was "Reconciling mechanistic and
evolutionary theories of ageing." David Gems argued for the bloated soma
theory, an alternative to the disposable soma theory of ageing; Daryl
Shanley defended the disposable soma theory. The event, introduced by
Prof Adrian Lister (NHM) and chaired by Dr Max Reuter (UCL) was well
attended and there were many questions and comments from the audience.
