New Honour for Sabina

Hot on the heels of her election to the Global Young Academy for science Dr Sabina Leonelli, Senior Lecturer at Egenis, has been admitted to membership of the Society of Biology. This constitutes a significant recognition of the extent to which her research contributes not only to the social studies of science, but to biology itself.

The Society is a voice for biology which plays a key role in advising government on science policy. As well as advancing education and professional development, it engages and encourages public interest in the life sciences.

"This is a great honour for me, and I’m very excited that my work with plant science has been recognised in this way," said Sabina. "The presence and recognition of social studies is important to the advancement and promotion of the life sciences, and I hope that the Network for the History, Philosophy and Sociology of Plant Science, which I started earlier this year, will play a role in promoting interdisciplinary interactions."

The Society of Biology says that its vision is "to represent all who are committed to biology in academia, industry, education and research; to facilitate the promotion and translation of advances in biological science for national and international benefit, and to engage and encourage public interest in the life sciences."
