GENius of the Month

Each month we recognise the outstanding contribution of someone working with the Genes in the Environment ISP.

November 2017

Laila Moubayidin is November's 'GENius of the Month' for her recent great performances.

Laila’s nomination said: “She wrote a new grant proposal in August while also making advances in the lab. She has developed a new system to study her question in. She looks at the cell cycle and symmetry transitions and had previously only looked at the gynoecium (fruit). Now, she has developed it in a way that she can study the hypocotyl too – this means she can get results much quicker.

She also continuously helps everyone else in the lab. I think she is a worthy winner of the award to reward the hard work she’s been doing”

October

Our ‘GENius of the Month’ for October is Charlotte Miller.

Charlotte has been selected for giving a number of brilliant talks this year including presenting her excellent work at PAG in San Diego, at the ABCEED symposium at the John Innes Centre and giving an exceptional presentation at the recent JIC-CAAS Brassica workshop. 

September

Cathy Mansfield is our GENius of September 2017 winner.

Cathy won this award for giving two very successful talks, at the FASEB Mechanisms in Plant Development conference in Vermont USA and at the student Annual Science Meeting, and also winning two poster prizes at the FASEB and NoCASS conferences.

Well done Cathy.

August

Our very first GENius of the Month was Ali Pendle who was selected for her brilliant organisation and running of an in situ hybridisation course in China.

As her nomination said: “All in situs are technically difficult to do, running a course in your own lab with familiar equipment is challenging and very demanding, to do this for 10 days on your own in China in a lab you have never been to before is in my opinion exceptional performance and deserves recognition.”
