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!
