Professor Jane Langdale appointed a Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences

Congratulations to our very own Professor Jane Langdale, who was this week appointed a Foreign Associate of the National Academy of Sciences. This is in recognition of her distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.

Of her award, Jane said: "This was totally unexpected. I am honoured, amazed (gobsmacked actually), and so grateful to all of my group members – past and present - who have contributed to the body of work that this award recognises."

We would also like to congratulate Professor Steve Long, last year’s Newton-Abraham Visiting Professor in the Department, who has also been elected to the National Academy. What an excellent week for Oxford Plant Sciences!
