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!

Postdoctoral position: Transcriptional control of immunemetabolic choice in Drosophila

A three-year MRC-funded postdoctoral position is available in Marc Dionne’s laboratory in the Centre for Molecular and Cellular Biology of Inflammation (CMCBI) at King’s College London. This project follows from recent work exploring genetic and genomic mechanisms underlying the choice between immune and metabolic function in the Drosophila fat body (see Clark et al, Cell 155: 435 [2013]). CMCBI is a centre of excellence in the basic biology of inflammation; the environment is highly interactive and the centre is home to groups working on inflammatory processes in flies, mice and humans. This project is a collaboration with Nazif Alic’s laboratory in the Institute of Healthy Ageing at University College London, affording further scientific input and collaborative scope. For further information, please contact Marc Dionne. This position will remain open until filled.
