Lorna Casselton featured in Scientific American
Lorna Casselton celebrated as one of ten top female scientists who passed away in 2014 by Scientific American:
Lorna was an outstanding scientist whose passion and enthusiasm inspired all around her; ten years after her retirement she frequently came into the Department to talk to postdocs and students about their research. She was always encouraging and could always offer practical suggestions to solve any problems presented. Above all, Lorna was a highly respected colleague and friend to many of us. She had been a member of the Plant Sciences Department for over 20 years and was proud to call it her base when she was Vice President of The Royal Society after her retirement. She will be greatly missed.

Professor Lorna Casselton
Lorna Casselton
"When I was an undergraduate, the whole university took the same examination papers, so coming top in Botany finals was certainly the highlight of my undergraduate days. I still found time for fun in my final year and as secretary of the student union entertainments committee helped organise one of the wonderful student balls at the Royal Festival Hall."
