Lorna Casselton Memorial
St Cross College is deeply saddened by the loss of Professor Lorna Casselton CBE FRS, Honorary Fellow, and has established the Lorna Casselton Memorial in her memory with the support of her friends and family. The purpose of the Memorial will be to establish an annual lecture in Professor Casselton's name and a memorial scholarship for a graduate student in the biological/plant sciences. The Lorna Casselton Memorial Lecture will bring an eminent scientist to Oxford each year to give a keynote address on international science and present groundbreaking research.
Professor Casselton's research focused on sexual development in fungi and she was particularly distinguished for her genetic and molecular analysis of the mushroom Coprinus cinereus. Professor Casselton was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1999 and was appointed CBE in the 2012 Birthday Honours for services to fungal genetic and international science. Throughout her career she held a range of senior research positions including Professor of Genetics at Queen Mary College, London, and Professor of Fungal Genetics in the Department of Plant Sciences at Oxford. During her tenure as Foreign Secretary of the Royal Society, Professor Casselton oversaw the Society's programme of international activities and its relations with scientific academies and international bodies across the globe. It was in this role and in related professional activities that she was able to pursue her interests as a very active supporter of women in science and to promote excellence in scientific research in the developing world.
